Ramirez, who won last year in the National League batting was benched by manager Fredi Gonzalez as the Marlins to run behind a ball after a mistake in the second inning, costing two runs Florida .
On Tuesday, Ramirez said he has lost a little respect for Gonzalez, writes Joe Capozzi of the Palm Beach Post.
“It’s his team. He does what (expletive) want,” Ramirez said. “There is nothing I can do about it. It’s brutal.”
When asked if he wanted to apologize, as the partner of Wes Helms proposed, Ramirez said: “Who?” and “Why?”
Ramirez was shaken after fouling a pitch off his left shin in the first inning and was attended by a trainer.
The controversial play came in the next inning, shortstop Whe star accidentally kicked the ball about 100 feet to the left-field corner and after that he slept there (video link), allowing two runners to score. “I know some people will think I gave up, some people think it was a bit hurt,” Ramirez said.
Asked about the ankle injury, Ramirez said: “That’s good. He (Gonzalez) does not understand that. Never played in the majors.”
The Associated Press contributed to that history.
