While expressing disappointment in Ramirez, they did not distance themselves from him. The forgiving and forgetting will commence as soon as public sentiment allows. The Dodgers continue to sell his merchandise and use him in advertising campaigns. A Ramirez bobblehead promotion is still scheduled for July 22. He could return to the lineup July 3.
Meanwhile, Ramirez is taking typical PR steps: apologizing, meeting with teammates, and being "sorrowful."
