    Another AP editing goof. The Dominican president is only identified as Fernandez on first reference. Come on AP, someone could do better.


    UPDATE: Notice a writethru changed the lede slightly and identified Fernandez correctly on first reference. Crossthreading with the Web site copy editing thread, this is just another example of copy being rushed onto the wire.

    Good to see he found something to do after baseball, besides terrorizing buffet managers in 37 states.

    So that's what happened to Manny Fernandez after his wrestling career ended.
