Posted in Blogs Worse Than This One, Hanley Ramirez on August 9, 2009 by Adam Smoot


Athlete’s blogs are boring and, for the most part, pretty awful. There are a few exceptions–or so I’m told, even though I haven’t managed to find any of them–but the vast majority read like press conference talking points; nothing off-color, funny or even remotely interesting. Which is why the Hanley Ramirez blog is a breath of fresh air. Hanley goes out of his way to talk smack and post photos of half-naked players in the locker room… Okay, really, who am I kidding? Here’s the latest post from Hanley, which was most likely written by someone who isn’t Hanley:

Like I’ve said for a while, when we play as a team, we do a lot better. This is not tennis. Not one individual. We are playing together as a team. That’s when you win, when everybody isĀ chipping in. I am happy to see that we are playing better defensively. Fredi and all the staff, they’ve been working with us. They’ve been working hard with us, and we are going to stay focused on it. We went into Spring Training wanting to get better on defense, and we’re getting better and better. People ask what I’m doing better on defense. I’m using my feet better. It’s about positioning. We’ve been working, and we’re going to keep working at it.

So, there you have it. If you didn’t fall asleep halfway through it, here’s the Cliffs notes version: Breaking news! The Florida Marlins have been working on getting better.

Stay tuned for his next post, where Hanley discusses the importance of scoring more runs that the opposition.
