Hanley Ramirez's weight-loss program looks to be going fine

Ortiz backs Red Sox, says Ramirez should lose weight

If anyone knows how important weight loss can be, it’s David Ortiz. The Boston Red Sox designated hitter has thrived through age 39 largely because he shed the pounds needed to stay healthy and on the field. So when it came to the Red Sox’s similar request of friend and teammate Hanley Ramirez, the team had Ortiz’s full support. “Hey look, they know,” Ortiz told the Boston...

Finding a New Home for Hanley Ramirez

The Red Sox are primed to make some moves this off-season, but not much is known about what those moves will be. They might sign a big money pitcher, they might not. They might trade a bunch of prospects, but they might not. They’re very likely to do something, probably, but what that something is, nobody has any idea. That’s all true, with one exception, an exception you...

Can Sandoval and Ramirez save their Red Sox careers?

The Boston Red Sox finished 78-84 in 2015, slumping to their third last-place AL East finish over the last four years—though a championship in 2013 certainly softens the blow a little—and have two outlandish contracts on their books for the next three-four seasons. You know who I’m talking about: Pablo Sandoval and Hanley Ramirez. Are each of them really as bad as their...
