Hanley Ramirez Must Go

The Boston Red Sox brought in a high-profile President of Baseball Operations in Dave Dombrowski to get the team back to winning, and doing so consistently. Part of that is through shrewd evaluation, big-time trades and tough calls. Making the decision to get rid of Hanley Ramirez is not one of those calls, it’s a no-brainer. The problem with moving Hanley is getting someone...

End of season post-mortem: 2015 Boston Red Sox

The AL East appeared to be completely up for grabs and with significant free agent signings in Hanley Ramirez and Pablo Sandoval, the Red Sox seemed in excellent position to contend for a playoff spot. Between subpar production from those additions, along with a failure to build a reliable starting rotation and bullpen cost general manager Ben Cherington his job. Replaced by Dave...

The Yankees had better win it this year, because Boston could be loaded for a long time to come

Watching the Redsocks eat our lunch last night, I closed my eyes and thanked the juju gods for Hanley Ramirez and the Kung Fu Panda - two sodden lumps that could gunk up the Boston lineup for years. It's nice to know that other teams - not just the Yankees - occasionally try to buy the George Washington Bridge. Still, as Boston kicked us around, it wasn't hard to imagine a harsh...

Hanley Ramirez is moving to first base for the Red Sox

Boston isn’t punting on Hanley Ramirez quite yet. In fact, the Red Sox intend to change Ramirez’s position in 2016 (after changing it from shortstop to left field in 2015), and will shift him to first base. Hanley IS moving to first base by next year, he said. Maybe some this year. He's on board. "I'm looking forward to it." — Michael Silverman (@MikeSilvermanBB) August 25...

Ramirez was spotted taking reps at first base ahead of Tuesday’s game against the Chicago White Sox at U.S. Cellular Field under the tutelage of David Ortiz and infield coach Brian Butterfield. Things that make you go...

Report: Hanley Ramirez’s attitude has ‘irked’ Sox veterans

The Boston Red Sox are in last place in the AL East and have found themselves in the same discussion as teams like the Miami Marlins. One of their big offseason acquisitions, Pablo Sandoval, was recently benched after he went on Instagram in the middle of a game. The other, Hanley Ramirez, is apparently annoying...Read More
