Manny catches warning track drive, then high fives fan

Update: The video of Manny's catch and subsequent high five has been removed from Big League Stew at the request of Major League Baseball.

The Red Sox lost this game, 6-3, to Baltimore and they've dropped four in a row to fall out of first place in the AL East. But, hey ... at least Manny is busy being Manny.

Seriously, though, I bet catching a ball like that and then high-fiving a fan in the first row of the bleachers is much, much harder than Manny Ramirez, who says he yearns to win a Gold Glove this season, made it look in the clip below.

Said Ramirez of the catch: "It was fun. I love it. I think, you know, that's how you get your All-Star vote. I'm pretty sure that guy's gonna vote for me. It's one at a time, you know. Get your votes one at a time."

A big BLS head nod goes to Mister Irrelevant for the quick and effective Lasso.
