Guillen: Hanley not '100 percent' OK with move

While it made the offense much stronger, the signing of star shortstop Jose Reyes caused some drama for the newly-named Miami Marlins this winter. That's because, as we all know, the Marlins already had a star shortstop: Hanley Ramirez. The signing of Reyes pushed Ramirez to third base, though there were rumors floating around the Winter Meetings that Ramirez had demanded a trade. Those turned out to be false, but evidently he still isn't exactly happy about the move.

Marlins manager Ozzie Guillen point blank, almost emphatically, said, "no," when asked if Ramirez was "100 percent on board" with the move to third base. He didn't even hesitate, also saying that Ramirez was upset with having to change positions. Guillen did say, however, he expects Ramirez to be 100 percent OK with the move by the time they play St. Louis (opening day of the regular season) and that everyone should "just let it be."

Here's the entire video of Guillen discussing the situation, shot by Miami Herald writer Clark Spencer:

Ho

How about if the Yanks get him? We trade ARod and eat a
whole bunch of salary like we did with Burnett. 
ARod is from the area and can finish his career in the sun.

The Yanks could tell Ramirez that he will play third until
Jeter retires and it is all his

Actually Hanley has a better fielding ratio than reyes over the their careers, I seen on MLB network that when you dig into the numbers Hanley is actually got more range in the whole and has a better fielding percentage on what stat keepers deam to be "difficult" plays.  And even last year Hanley rated better on their scale, not sure of percentage, but he experts actually think Hanley is the more consistant fielder.

Doesn't Ramirez realize Reyes is a walking injury, especially now that he has a huge contract. He'll still play at least half next season's games at short.

Like in NY A Rod came in the new guy and went to 3B while Jeter stayed at SS. It should be the same in Miami Reyes the new guy should go to 3 B.

Thank you mjm5660 for taking a realistic approach towards the Red Sox acquiring Hanley. At the end of the day Miami might try a salary dump, but there are several MLB teams out there that would kill for a franchise SS in his prime, even with the baggage. I think Boston isn't gonna get away with skimming off their farm system while holding onto their blue-chip 3B prospect. I don't think you get away with getting Hanley AND keeping Will Middlebrooks. An arm is a good start, but Jose Iglesias isn't gonna turn their heads. Also, if these Red Sox pitching prospects were so talented (not too familiar with their current farm pitching), then why isn't the back end of the Red Sox rotation settled?
