SAN DIEGO — Everyone wants to see the Dodgers’ Manny Ramirez. I’d rather see Taylor Hooton.
Everyone wants to wrap their arms around Ramirez — with jeers or cheers. I’d rather watch Hooton and his father, Don, share a loving embrace.
Ramirez will return Friday night against the Padres after serving a 50-game suspension for violating baseball’s drug policy. Taylor, a promising 16-year-old pitcher, is never coming back.
