Hanley RamirezJack McKeon is making a mark in his first game as the Marlins' interim manager, benching Hanley Ramirez for tonight's game against the Angels.

Ramirez was late to the clubhouse on the new boss' first day (according to Tom D'Angelo of the Palm Beach Post), but it was because of Ramirez's play on Sunday that the new manager benched the team's shortstop. McKeon told reporters he didn't like the way Ramirez was running in Sunday's game.

Ramirez was 0 for 3 on Sunday and is now hitting .201/.300/.296. 

Ramirez spoke out in favor of former manager Edwin Rodriguez in the last couple of days, I'm not expecting anything like that soon from him in favor of McKeon.

Hey has a career average over .300, slugging percentage over .500 averages 21 HR a season, over 34 SB's over 160 hits per season, fielding percentages off the charts, ya he's terrible doesn't hustle with those stats. lol
Guy has a slow start and people like you that know nothing jump all over him with bullshit.

Exactly, the kid is the franchise. He's been the best SS in baseball for what? The last 3-4-5 years? He's 27 years old, off to a slow start, he's been injured, he's been on the DL. So he's quit on his team all of a sudden, maybe they should trade him since he's so terrible.

Ya you cheer up those US team Stanley Cup's the majority of players on EVERY US team are Canadian. Montreal, Toronto and Edmonton have won more Cups than every US team added up.

Just stop talking now, your sounding more stupid with every post. Go brush your tooth.


dude you sound more and more ignorant.....a guy hitting .201 is the best shortstop in baseball? a guy who never runs hard...or hustle after balls that get bye him for inside the park homers is the best player in baseball?


why is it that after all these canucks come to tampa and play they never go back to canada?....hmmmmm i wonder

LMAO take a good look at your country, its a joke as are you. HR IS the franchise, off the DL, if they said it was because of the lateness that would be different. 
Leave it to a redneck like yourself to bring geography into a baseball discussion. Go back to your out door love seat swing. You really should add your website to your posts. 


what are you going to do.....have a riot....canada has managed to make raider fan look like petulant children..even your national water polo team was represented....

so if hes late its ok to bench him...if he doesnt play hard its not....this toolbag is hitting .201....you could bring up a career minor leaguer to hit .201...the difference is the minor leaguer wont pout...quit on his team...and will play hard every night....no wonder canada hasnt won a cup in 20 years...with that mentality you wont ever win a cup....enjoy alexander semin....hes right up your alley.


god when are the glaciers going to advance again and cover that abortion up again

At the time Hanley Ramirez was traded to the Marlins it was rumored that the Red Sox' front office was only a little reluctant to deal him because of his attitude.  While they were well aware of his future promise, they feared what was perceived as his lazy attitude and lack of professionalism, and that exposing him to Manny Ramirez could only make that worse.  Boston showed tremendous foresight in dealing him and getting rid of a potential clubhouse cancer.

Benching Ramirez is probably a pretty good start toward establishing discipline.  Let's hope that McKeon can restore some fire to that club with minimal interference from Loria.

.201/.300/.296  It doesn't take a lot of brass to bench those numbers especially when the guy loafs.  Almost any backup can improve on those numbers and that's what needs to happen to win games.  Let him ride the pines.  They're certainly not missing anything.  Make him play his way back into the lineup.
