PHOENIX - In the clubhouse a day before position players were scheduled to report for spring training, Hanley Ramirez said Wednesday he wanted to be “a Dodger for life.” But Ramirez otherwise declined to talk about his contractual status, saying with a smile, “I'm a baseball player.” Ramirez said he was still disappointed with how the Dodgers' 2013 season ended. Struck by a fastball, Ramirez fractured a rib in Game 1 of the National League Championship Series. He could barely swing the bat for the remainder of the series, which the Dodgers lost to the St. Louis Cardinals.

Clark agreed, and soon became a fixture in printed and broadcast news accounts, protesting his client's innocence.
