Report: Sox To Sign Hanley Ramirez
According to Fox Sports, free agent Hanley Ramirez is on his way to Boston to sign a 5-year, $90 million dollar contract. Now the question is - where will he play?
Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports was first to report this overnight.
Ramirez was a one time top prospect of the Red Sox. He was part of the big trade with the Florida Marlins that netted Josh Beckett and Mike Lowell.
Ramirez, who will be 31-years-old next month, has been with the LA Dodgers for the past three seasons. He hit .283 with 13 home runs and 71 RBI in 128 games.
The question is...where will he play for the Red Sox? Which leads to other questions...
Will he play third base?
If so, what about if Pablo Sandoval accepts his deal?
Can Ramirez play leftfield?
Does it mean Cespedes gets traded?
Does he play shortstop and the Sox trade Xander Bogaerts to the Phillies for Cole Hamels?
For a team that wanted to get more lefthanded hitting, why Rameriz?
Welcome to the hot season season!
