Hanley Ramirez blast caps wild comeback as Red Sox stun Yankees | Boston Herald

I went to bed a little early last night and missed the big comeback. It was a big, happy surprise.

Hanley Ramirez hits three home runs vs. Giants | MLB.com

Hanley had a huge day, including a homer after getting hit by a pitch. Pomeranz looked good for three innings, then got rocked.

“Every time I get hit, that fires me up,” said Ramirez, who, along with his teammates, were clad in the throwback Red Sox uniforms from 1975. “I think it makes me a better player when I get hit, because I get so angry. You know, sometimes Hanley’s just not Hanley. It’s somebody else.”

When asked if he said, “I’ll getcha back,” to Suarez after getting hit by a pitch in the fourth, Ramirez wholeheartedly laughed before refusing to confirm or deny the comment.

“Don’t ask me that,” Ramirez said. “That’s a secret.”

Matt Carpenter joining some of elites, when it comes to leadoff hitters.

Matt Carpenter, a 13th-round pick in 2009, has re-imagined the leadoff spot for a modern game and is on his way to claiming two of the best seasons ever by a leadoff hitter. Carpenter has made a strong All-Star push with a remarkable month. Since the birth of his daughter, Carpenter has hit .385 with a .491 on-base percentage and a 1.231 OPS. He has reached base almost as many times (57) as he has outs (59) in that span. With another two hits Tuesday night in Kansas City, Carpenter has raised his season average to .300, his on-base percentage to .420, and his slugging percentage to .592. He’s a 3-4-5 hitter (.300/.400/.500), and he’s doing it from the leadoff spot. Let’s put the argument of where he should aside, and look only at what he’s done from the top spot in the order. It’s Hendersonian.

red sox - Hanley is being Hanley, and it seems to be working out for all involved - WEEI | Rob Bradford

It worked for Mr. 3000.

Hanley Ramirez bunted with two outs, the scored tied in the ninth inning and David Ortiz standing at third base Saturday afternoon.

“He saw something maybe only he saw,” lamented Red Sox manager John Farrell.

Not a good baseball play, as the reaction from virtually everyone in Fenway Park could attest after the execution resulted in an easy, inning-ending out.

It’s only one game, but Hanley Ramirez sure looked good Tuesday - The Boston Globe

“The more pressure we can apply, we feel like there will be mistakes defensively,” he added. “We know that during the course of the year, you’re not always going to be swinging the bats as you’re capable of as a team for six months. You’ve got to find other ways to be successful.”

Nick Cafardo: What has changed in the AL East? - The Boston Globe

Hanley has looked good at first. He won’t be the horrible drain on the team’s defense in left. Might he have an occasional hiccup? Maybe. Even if it doesn’t happen I’m sure Cafardo will find something to complain about regarding him. Did Hanley steal his lollipop or something?

The Red Sox still leave you with questions about their future. That feeling is fueled by injuries to Eduardo Rodriguez and Carson Smith, the fact that Pablo Sandoval is still overweight and now injured (back), and the sentiment that Hanley Ramirez isn’t taking the move to first base seriously.

“Let’s see how mature [Ramirez] is by May,” said one AL scout. “Let’s see how interested he is at first base after he strikes out with the bases loaded and has to field his position.”
