He's a young talented athlete who has likely been handed everything in life because of that talent. Nothing to see here IMO.

They obviously need to fire the manager. How dare he embarass the star of the team. I mean he eventually got the ball right, what more does he want?

Agreed 100%. And it's not right to call out your manager like that ... saying you lost respect for him, because YOU didn't hustle, really?
Remember me?

Wow, I've lost a lot of respect for Hanley after this situation and reading that article about Uggla and other teammates calling him out.

yeah this sours my opinion of Hanley a bit. never realized he had issues in the past, though I knew about the Uggla thing and it escaped my mind.

maybe management will grow tired of clubhouse antics and ship him off to a contending team. one can wish... :-b

i think you have to factor in Ramirez fouling a ball off his ankle in the previous inning.
lets assume for a minute his ankle was bothering him. now lets assume while running after the ball he did hustle to get the ball, and while doing so in some way hurt his ankle further causing him to miss an extended period of time. do you think people would have then said, well maybe Hanley should not have ran as hard on his allready sore ankle?
i can understand the manager afterwards in the dugout questioning Hanely for not hustling after the ball, but at that point if Hanely had said that his ankle was bothering him and he didnt want to hurt it further then maybe the manager should have accepted that reasoning and not been so upset.
if Hanely's ankle was completely fine then i think this is a different story. some might say then why was Hanley even in the field if his ankle was that bad, but playing SS you dont assume your going to be running that far. as the best player on the team if he had came out of the game after fouling the ball off his ankle some might have questioned his toughness, so cant blame him for remaining in the game.
now we have a story bigger than it should have been.

If he was worried about injury, he shouldn't have been in the game in the first place. Based on his past actions, I have a hard time believing that he's telling the truth in saying he was trying his hardest. He's had a history of dogging it going back to his minor league days in the Boston system. It's too bad because he has all the talent in the world, but after reading this story and seeing some informed opinions on him, it sounds like he's a douche who is totally out for himself.

Hate to play some devil's advocate here, but, this WASN'T the situation. It stands as is. Hanley looked like a moron shuffling after that ball.
