I am still trying to pinch myself to make sure this isn’t a dream. Wilson sporting games has a sponsorship deal with Hanley Ramirez. Why? No idea.I’m not convinced a player who was as much of a sh*tshow in the outfield deserves his own glove.

Statistics have shown that he was the worst defensive player in 2015, with a defensive WAR (wins above replacement) of -2.5, worst in the league despite him only playing 105 games and DH-ing some of the those. If Hanley played the field in 150 games this year, he would lose close to 4 games alone on his defense (to be fair his offensive WAR was .8 in 2015).
You can see Hanley’s glove below on the Wilson website (model A2000 HR13 GM).
I took it upon myself to slightly modify the page to a more accurate perception…
That should sell more Hanley Ramirez Wilson gloves, right? Let’s hope the first base experiment goes better than the outfield experiment did.
This season could go bad real fast. Fingers crossed that all works out.. godspeed Dombrowski.
The Bruins have entered the All-Star Break and despite having just one All-Star representative, they’re in a better position than most people would have predicted. Their last week of games before their week-long break included the end of an impressive penalty killing streak, a couple of milestones for their gritty, diminutive winger and some continuing road success against one Eastern Conference foe. This is: Bruins By The Numbers: This Week’s Good And Bad.
2: The B’s scored two power-play goals in their 3-2 win over the Flyers on Monday, marking the first time they scored more than one power-play goal since Dec. 29.
2: Brad Marchand was assessed a tripping penalty just two seconds into the second period of Monday’s win over the Flyers.
Rob Fee of Playboy.com comes off as a real comedian (he’s from Kentucky and must be a Bungles fan which is funny in itself) with his article “A Day In The Life Of A New England Patriots Fan”. His article appeared on that website that shows air brushed women and has articles that people allegedly read like this trash on January 7th.
Then this Bungles loving clown decides to re-post this on Huffington Post only a few days after the Patriots lost to the Broncos in their bid to reach an incredible SEVENTH Super Bowl with the Hoodie and G.O.A.T. combo.
Guess it wasn’t funny 3 weeks ago and still isn’t now….so who is hatin’ on who Rob?
Mr. Fee, Patriots fans have every right to defend themselves and shield themselves from the Hate Train. Every team cheats, but the Patriots got the whistle blown on them for Spygate by a former employee, Eric Mangini who took part in “the cheating” when he was on Belichick’s staff.
Guess it was okay then, but not when it worked against him and the NYJ.
And we all know Deflategate is an utter disgrace when Tom Brady gets crucified for being “Generally Aware” of football pressure and Peyton Manning skates free while injecting HGH in his FIVEhead.
You all hate us because you aint us!
The Patriots weren’t always this good, we actually sucked so bad in the early 90’s that the team almost moved to f’n St. Louis, know that city who just lost their second franchise.
I have been a fan of this team for over 30 years (season ticket holder for 21), I have seen the GOOD (over the last 15 years), The BAD (most of the previous 40) & UGLY. So save your finger pointing , name calling and “humor” because We F*CKING EARNED THIS!
We stayed true to our hometown franchise and we are reaping the benefits….so sorry not sorry!
NOTE: Ok the goddess wearing the Pats shirt is WICKED HAWT!
As you may have noticed, there seem to be a lot of posts on Facebook that have a stick figure and a list of random facts listed. These Facebook posts are created through an app called “Be Like Me” and they seem to be the next Facebook craze that people are participating in. The Celtics Facebook fan page even went as far as creating one for Kelly Olynyk:
Kimbrel is in his baseball-playing prime at 27 years of age. He began his career with the Atlanta Braves and was traded in the winter of 2014-2015 to the San Diego Padres. At that time, the Padres were in win-now mode: that offseason they would sign Kimbrel, along with hard-hitting outfielder Matt Kemp and workhorse starting pitcher James Shields. Now a year removed from that flurry of additions, San Diego is back to rebuilding its base of youthful talent again, and Dave Dombrowski of Boston helped them to that end.
But paying that price is a luxury you can afford when previous GM Ben Cherington stocked your farm with top prospects. Apart from that, Kimbrel is truly a Major League talent. In 6 seasons, he has amassed a 1.63 ERA in 348.1 IP, striking out 563 and featuring a 0.927 WHIP and 14.5 SO/9 rate. What Kimbrel will provide is a young, shut-down closer to replace the aging Koji Uehara. Both Uehara and 7th/8th inning specialist Junichi Tazawa should see increased rest with the presence of Kimbrel.
Kimbrel’s contract keeps him under team control through the 2018 season. At $11MM for 2016 and $13MM for both the 2017 and 2018 seasons, his contract is a hit to the books, but it is a lighter one than that of other recent additions like Pablo Sandoval (weight pun entirely intended).
Though his fastball clocks in at a hard 98 MPH, Kimbrel’s heart is soft: he is the Chairman of Players Curing Kids Cancer. Kimbrel donates $100 when he gets a save and $25 every time he strikes out a batter, giving Sox fans just one more reason to stand up and cheer in the 9th inning.
