Oh how I miss the jovial and playful nature of Hanley Ramirez. Few players had as much fun, and I'm sure he's missed by many within the Dodger clubhouse.
Still, with him moving on to Boston it provided a great opportunity for the former Dodger slugger to air a grievance for himself and Dodger Nation. As you may know, a teammate of his at the Red Sox is former Cardinals pitcher Joe Kelly, and you should remember him as the fellow who effectively knocked Ramirez out of the 2013 NLCS. Watch the video below to recall the gory details.
Yeah, I hate that guy.
Well, I'm happy to report that Hanley got his revenge for that cracked rib by forcefully putting Kelly in a headlock at the Red Sox Spring home in Fort Myers, FL. See the photo at the very top.
OK. Maybe not forcefully... And certainly not with any malice. I do like the sentiment, though, so thank you Hanley!

As you can imagine, Ramirez has made himself at home with the Red Sox. He's definitely enjoying himself. Below is another photo of himself goofing around with Joe Kelly and Pablo Sandoval.
