Marlins Don’t Intend To Trade Hanley Ramirez

With Jose Reyes in the fold, it appears Hanley Ramirez won't be playing shortstop for the Marlins next season. However, that doesn't mean the club plans to trade him. Owner Jeffrey Loria and president of baseball operations Larry Beinfest both suggested Ramirez would be fine with changing positions and will remain a Marlin.

Danny Knobler of CBS Sports says Loria views Ramirez as "part of the plan, part of the core." The Marlins owner said the team intends to "make everything comfortable" for the 27-year-old. Meanwhile, Beinfest conveyed a similar sentiment, as Jon Paul Morosi of FOX Sports writes:

“If something like that happened," said Beinfest, referring to the not-yet-official Reyes signing, "[Ramirez] would change positions. If and when we acquire a shortstop, we’ll address that. Hanley wants to win. We’d like to provide the pieces around him to help him win.”

  1. Hanley is not going to be happy either way

    • rsanchez1 4 years ago

      Hanley is never happy unless he has a Mermaid in each arm.

  2. 55saveslives 4 years ago

    His ego exploded when Reyes was signed.

    Just trade him. He’s a bunch of money and get a better 2 or 4 hitter

    • Lunchbox45 4 years ago

      you’re not going to get a better hitter than him

      • UncleCharles 4 years ago

        May not get a better hitter but you will get a better presence. Don’t think Hanley will be happy playing the hot corner and will turn into a clubhouse cancer.

        • Lunchbox45 4 years ago

          you can’t forecast someones reception of something..

          Obviously before the marlins signed someone to 100 million dollar contract,  they contacted Han Ram.

          This is a non story I think.  He still gets to play everyday, and now he has an easier and less demanding position.. is that not win win?

            “Obviously before the marlins signed someone to 100 million dollar contract,  they contacted Han Ram.”

            Is that why when they asked him for a comment after the news that Reyes had signed he said , “No comment” . Hanley must have been just so over joyed that he was speechless .

          • Marlinsnation93 4 years ago

            Your response is incorrect. Hanley has not commented on the signing one way or another. His agent said “No comment.” Before the signing Hanley was quoted as saying he welcomed the signing of Reyes because he wanted to win.

          • Marlinsnation93 4 years ago

            Your statement is incorrect. Hanley has not as of yet commented on the signing. His agent said “No comment.” Before the Reyes signing, Hanley was quoted as saying he was in favor of the signing because he wanted to win.

          • Lunchbox45 4 years ago

            So not talking to the media = unhappy about position change..

            absolutely no flaws in your theory?

        • slider32 4 years ago

          Great hitters don’t hit .250 at age 27.

          • notsureifsrs 4 years ago

            “great hitters don’t have bad years”

  4. I do not care what they are saying now. If he wants out, they will give it to him. He already showed he would quit if he doesnt want to play. Maybe they would trade him to mets in deal for wright, parnell, and a prospect. Another poss place to trade him to would be the red sox.

    Attention Harold Reynolds

  6. vtadave 4 years ago

    SS Jose Reyes
    3B Hanley Ramirez
    1B Albert Pujols
    RF Mike Stanton
    LF Logan Morrison
    CF Emilio Bonafacio
    2B Omar Infante
    C John Buck

    Decent

    • “Decent” is not the right word there, more like “murderers row”.

      • $3513744 4 years ago

        Fierce, but not quite murderer’s row.  There isn’t a combo in there that is as feared of hitters as Ruth and Gehrig were in their era, let alone the rest of the lineup.  Plus, there’s still a big if on Pujols since he hasn’t even signed.

      • bravesdude 4 years ago

        “murderers row”.

        HA-HA !! LOL .

    • Todd Smith 4 years ago

      Obviously not comparing the two by any means – but the lineup looks pretty damn good even with Gaby Sanchez in there at first base.

    • Lunchbox45 4 years ago

       no pitching!

      • nictonjr 4 years ago

         Sign Pujols.  Trade Gaby Sanchez to Tampa for Alex Cobb.  Johnson, Sanchez, Cobb, Nolasco.  Not horrible…

        • rsanchez1 4 years ago

          Johnson, Buehrle/Wilson, Nolasco, Sanchez, possibly Cobb.

          That’s a good rotation.

          • Lunchbox45 4 years ago

            define good?

            Its the 3rd best rotation in the division. goes to 4th if JJ doesn’t have a good year/stays healthy 

          • bravesdude 4 years ago

            You should win at least 2 of those 5 games , anyways .

        • Lunchbox45 4 years ago

          you guys live in la la land.

      • Trade Josh Johnson for Tim Lincecum and Matt Cain. Trade Anibal Snachez for David Price and Jeremy Hellickson. Problem solved!

        • JTT11 4 years ago

          I like it….  (i completely realize that that is a non possibility… kinda like trading my pocket lint for france)

    • Dylan 4 years ago

      I posted that lineup 2 weeks ago…and it got deleted by moderators. Conspiracy? I think so.

      • $3513744 4 years ago

        It must have been their way to telling you that you’re not as special.

    • rsanchez1 4 years ago

      Bump Bonifacio up to leadoff, and you have something there.

      • biffsniff 4 years ago

        yea, you sure do have something. a really dumb idea.

  7. rsanchez1 4 years ago

    I think Reyes would play a better 3B than Ramirez, but then again the past few years have been garbage for the Marlins at 3B, so either Ramirez or Reyes at that position will be a big improvement.

  8. slider32 4 years ago

    Hanley is a hard player to figure. Ozzie should be able to get him to play to his potential, and hopefully he will play hard all the time.

    • Jay LeBlanc 4 years ago

      Yes, because Ozzie gets the best out of the players he has. Fantastic seasons from Rios, Dunn, etc., he’s a true motivator.

    Cardinals get: Hanley Ramirez and cash
    Marlins get: Chris Carpenter
    i like it, get it done Johnny Mo

    • wait_HOWmanyrings 4 years ago

      yeah, you like it, don’t think the marlins would. People make too much of hanley being a “clubhouse cancer”. There not just going to give up on someone who before last year was a perrenial mvp contender from the SS position

      • sam_lammert 4 years ago

        that wasn’t a serious proposal 

        • wait_HOWmanyrings 4 years ago

          i realize that, i was just expressing that people in general are overblowing the situation, and forgetting about hanley’s true value

  10. $3513744 4 years ago

    Except that Jeter is signed through 2013 with an option for 2014 and he’s not going to just walk out on that last year.  I really wouldn’t expect him to give up SS either.

  11. Dylan 4 years ago

    Brewers? Phillies? Red Sox? Every team but Yankees, Colorado, Pirates, Padres, A’s, Rangers, O’s, and Royals I would think. I prob. Missed some, but oh,well.

  12. dorsey56 4 years ago

    I gotta agree w/you. Just image Cano and Ramirez up the middle. 65-70 HRs and 200 Rbi’s, together? Lets get the ball rolling….

  13. $3513744 4 years ago

    No Yankee fan here either, but I just highly doubt Jeter would just step aside.
