  • Trade: Dodgers acquire Hanley Ramirez from Marlins

    Looks like a done deal. Hanley for Choate and Eovaldi. Oh, and the Dodgers must assume Hanley's contract for the next few years.
    Seems like a good move for the Dodgers, that is, if Hanley can start playing to his potential.

        I think it's an okay move for Miami.

        Ramirez is not the same player that he once was. He's been struggling to bat .245 these last two seasons.

        Miami also benefits from getting away from his expensive contract, and they get a 22 year old pitcher with enormous potential.

        Winner = Miami

            Well at 45-51, they aren't exactly a winning team, are they?

              Agreed - the Reyes / Ramirez experiment was a failure - both guys aren't playing to their max. And last year's All Star Gaby Sanchez has fallen off the face of the planet.
              Clearly it's time for a new strategy in Miami. They can start by ditching that stupid logo...

                  hanley and choate for a couple of minor league dudes? Why not release them directly? I know hanley had two down years but why give away players for nothing? What's the benefit for the marlins in that trade?

                      Excellent point. He's been so irrelevant to winning I forgot about him.

                        As a Dodger fan, I've watched Eovaldi and he has potential--I'm sorry to see him go. I really like the deal because the Dodgers now can afford that salary and a change of scenery may be what's needed.

                          I am hoping you are right about Ramirez, and he does not end up being the same as Uribe, who was purchased on the downward slide and kept sliding!! It is disappointing that Eovaldi has gone, but if Lily comes back with any form and any of the other pitching rumors materialize, it may have been a good deal. Choate maybe a good fit.

                            I can't exactly explain why Uribe's been so bad, but to say he was acquired on a "downward slide" is factually incorrect, seeing as how he'd just come off one of, if not the best season of his ML career. He had a career high in home runs (24) and RBI (85) and hit perhaps the biggest home run in San Francisco Giants history against the Phillies in game 6 of the NLDS.

                            Perhaps, he's really just a Giants fan at heart and he's doing his best to sabotage da Bums! After all, his uncle was Jose Uuuuuu-Ribe!

                              I'm skeptical on Ramirez. The Dodgers have only had one great trade deadline deal in the last 20 years and it was a different Ramirez. I hope there is a pattern...

                              Also everyone is forgetting about Choate, the Dodgers really need him, he may end up being more valuable down the line than Ramirez.
