06:54 AM ET 10.21 | It sounds bad. Really bad. Not even Joe Torre could deny that. In the moment Philadelphia's Jimmy Rollins crushed Jonathan Broxton's 1-1 fastball for a two-run, winning double Monday night in Game 4 of the National League Championship Series, the Dodgers' Manny Ramirez was already in the showers, blissfully unaware of the punch to the gut his teammates on the field were enduring. "I was taking a shower," Ramirez said with a nonchalant shrug. "I came out and saw it on television. Then everybody started coming in and they turned the television off." few minutes later, Torre quickly began the damage control. He seemed disappointed, but not surprised. Showering early, heck leaving early, is rather common for Ramirez, and Torre has come to understand him better than almost anyone. "I think the way it turned out, it probably doesn't look good," Torre said. "But he certainly didn't have any lack of respect because of that."
