Steve Silva runs down the list of Hanley Ramirez’s missteps.
An interesting look at park adjustments by Tony Blengino. I have always preferred park adjustments by BIP rather than AB or PA. I would have liked to have seen their 2014 numbers translated to Fenway rather than just adjusted rate stats.

I wouldn’t completely rule out the possibility that Ramirez ends up at shortstop. It depends on the team’s internal evaluation of Deven Marrero. He’s considered a potential Gold Glove winning shortstop. The question is, will he hit? If the Red Sox think he will, it will open the possibility of trading Xander Bogaerts for a young, top-notch pitcher (or Hamels if they strike out with Lester). That could set up a timeline with Ramirez at shortstop in 2015. In 2016, when Napoli becomes a free agent, Hanley could move to first base and with Marrero taking over at shortstop. Again, *if they think Marrero will hit*, such a scenario would position them to have above-average defense and offense all over the field. Just to be clear, I’m not saying this is their primary plan. I’m saying it’s a potential plan for them going forward.
Another take on the Ramirez signing.
Some possible end games for the Red Sox. I wouldn’t rule out Ramirez as a longterm solution at 1B. Napoli has only one year left on his contract. Their young players still have options available. They can trade some of their surplus and option some of their young players for at least part of next season. In 2016, Napoli leaves, Ramirez moves to 1B, and one of the youngsters slots in.
Get ready for the trades.
