Manny Ramirez arrived at A’s camp Friday, and he’s already making great strides with his new teammates.

Here’s A’s starting pitcher Brett Anderson on Twitter rehashing his first encounter with Ramirez. And it was classic “Manny being Manny.”

This is going to be a fun year in Oakland, if not a winning one.
