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.

Steve Lyons wrote this on his twitter account, @SteveLyons12.

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

  1. in all fairness...a loud heckle of 'yer a bum' is timeless in baseball, and always will be.

    i know they give it to us, and i've given my share of heckle in return. i heard that guy on the broadcast, but most of the time i couldnt hear his exact words.

    the general rule is, if ur gonna be loud - no cussing, and be funny. but - getting personal and calling out players mothers, sick children, alcoholic wives and so on, is definitely over the line.

    as spegel said - suck it frisco! always and any time.
