Holy Moly! Wow! Hanley Ramirez sure has a flare for the dramatic. Not only does the trade that got him here define the new direction for the team, but it also shows that a little bit of "Dodger Blue" does a player good. After a subpar start to the season with Miami, Hanley goes ahead and shows that he has not lost a step. Hanleywood here we come!
Below is a video of the home run, but I suspect youtube will be taken down soon. So, watch it before its gone.

In the I'm not surprised department, after the game several Giants fans got in to it with some of the Dodgers. According to a post-game report by Steve Lyons, some Gints fans got in to a verbal confrontation with Dee Gordon (hat tip: Reddit). Considering that Dee lost his mother at a very young age I can only imagine what they said to him.

If you want a reason to hate the Giants this is the reason why.
