Ramirez says he's done playing, looks forward to coaching

MESA, Ariz. (AP) On his first day at spring training with the Chicago Cubs, Manny Ramirez was looking forward to his new job as hitting consultant.

"I'm very blessed they have confidence in me," Ramirez said Wednesday.

Suspended by Major League Baseball in 2009 and 2011 for performance-enhancing drugs, Ramirez was hired last summer by Cubs president of baseball operations Theo Epstein as a player-coach for Triple-A Iowa. Epstein was Ramirez's old boss in Boston.
