Hanley Ramirez from starter to Job Hunting
The Red Sox did not want to pay Hanley Ramirez, simply put. Throw some shade on him and send the first baseman packing with the title “He is not that good”. Ramirez (@HanleyRamirez) Tweet it “Thank you #RedSoxNation. It’s been real. Love you always”, pretty much a proper good bye to the team Right? It’s been real is like saying F*ck You and have a nice day.
Hanley Ramirez, 13 year veteran from Dominican Republic, will be job hunting for his 5th MLB team (if you count Florida and Miami been different teams). Red Sox and numbers will say that he is on a decline and it will be hard for him to find a job, which I hardly doubt. The Red Sox will still, more than likely, have to pay him 15 million, so really he is not doing that bad, but he is leaving a contending team.
So really what’s next? This season we have seen Matt Harvey find a new home with Reds and Jose Bautista with the Mets. So without a doubt Hanley will find a job, but really neither the Mets nor the Reds are really a place that players are dying to go to. Yes, a paycheck will be catch but also there is the reputation that comes with being on a winning team.
Is not all bad for Hanley, he has hit 6 home runs and 29 RBIs. Best case scenario the Milwaukee Brewers will give him a chance at some revenge against the Red Sox. The Brewers could use a guy to create offense especially since they only have 3 guys with more homers. A lot of people are giving Ramirez a bad rep, but he might just do great in a new environment.
Good Luck Hanley Ramirez, Hope you get your revenge.
