red sox - Has the real Hanley Ramirez stood up? - WEEI | Rob Bradford

If he’s hitting .195 in June, the Boston media will wear thin.

Hanley, Panda and the Monster | FanGraphs Baseball

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.

Hanley Ramirez, Pablo Sandoval, and Boston’s High-Risk, High-Reward Plan «

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.

Hanley Ramirez and the Logjam in Boston | FanGraphs Baseball

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.

Boston Red Sox in talks to acquire free agent Hanley Ramirez - ESPN Boston

Get ready for the trades.

The Boston Red Sox, not content to wait for third baseman Pablo Sandoval’s decision as to whether he will sign with the club, reportedly have come to terms with Hanley Ramirez on what is expected to be in the range of a five-year, $90 million agreement, FoxSports.com reported Sunday.

Ramirez was set to arrive in Boston on Monday to finalize terms of the deal, according to the report.

Red Sox trying for mega-free agent double play: Panda and Hanley - CBSSports.com

Really?

The Boston Red Sox are trying hard for a huge free agent double play, as they are involved with not only Pablo Sandoval but also Hanley Ramirez, according to sources.

The Red Sox are known to be in the middle of talks for star third baseman Sandoval, and after remaining in contact with Ramirez since as far back as the GM meetings, they are believed to be possibly moving toward an agreement with the star shortstop.

The Red Sox could even make it a triple play if they are able to lure both those positional stars, plus their former ace Jon Lester, who they are also talking to.

Hanley decision leads Friedman’s Hot Stove season | MLB.com

The most pressing decision is whether to make a one-year, $15.3 million qualifying offer to Hanley Ramirez by Monday. That would assure Los Angeles of a supplemental Draft pick between the first and second rounds if Ramirez rejects the offer and signs elsewhere, but it also gives Ramirez the choice of accepting the offer and committing to the Dodgers for one year.
