According to Scott Miller of CBSSports.com, rival executives who have spoken with the Marlins believe they've "never been more open to the idea" of trading Hanley Ramirez.
Hanley could be on the move. he could be play 3B for a new team, or even go back to SS.
I have owned Hanley for the past 2 seasons. A change of scenery could be good for him. He's no longer the vibrant .330 hitter he used to be. Heck, he's barely doing .230. If he were pitching, he would be stud. He's also been bad with RISP. I am too lazy to look it up, but it seems like whenever someone is on base, he pops up.
Hanley and Johnson bouncing all over the place right now. I believe the talent is still there in Hanley if he can just get a better attitude and become more patient at the plate. He also has a really nasty home/away split.
Home 0.303 AVG, 0.387 OBP, 0.881 OPS
Away 0.187 AVG, 0.251 OBP, 0.614 OPS
Which is actually kind of odd considering Marlins Park tends to be more pitcher friendly.
But with that said, as a Marlins fan, it has been one hell of a ride this year. I just hope whoever MIA trades for doesn't flop like in the past (ie Cameron Maybin & Andrew Miller)
Padres re-signed Huston Street, 2 years and $14M. So he's off the market. Doesn't make sense to me, but I guess it doesn't take much to compete in the NL West and the Padres feel that they're close... ??
