A young and talented shortstop for the Florida Marlins. Hanley Ramirez was a talented prospect in the Red Sox organization, but had not lived up to his hype. Ramirez was dealt to Florida in the Josh Beckett deal and had an enormous rookie season. Ramirez is a Jose Reyes type talent.
Sox Fan 1: Josh Beckett is good.
Sox Fan 2: Hes good, but I wish we didn't have to give up Hanley Ramirez.
One of Major League Baseball's best offensive players. Currently a shortstop for the Florida Marlins, Ramirez was the 2006 NL Rookie of the Year and owns the National League's top batting average midway through the 2009 season.
Ramirez has the ability to both hit for power and play effective smallball. Hanley's defense has also improved greatly, and his solid play at shortstop has complimented his reputation as one of baseball's most feared hitters.
Wow, Hanley Ramirez is pretty much automatic with runners in scoring position...
