If you're a loyal reader, then you may remember the day when I accomplished one of my life's greatest achievements (sad but true). ESPN's Bill Simmons, aka The Sports Guy, answered my question in one of his popular chats last January. As a follow up, I've now had my question to ESPN's baseball expert, Buster Olney, posted on his chat, as well (reprinted below). He even said my name! I know, this made your day, too.
Alex K. (New York): Hey, Buster. Do you think the Marlins will sign Hanley Ramirez to a long-term deal?
Buster Olney: Alex: Nope. He's got Red Sox or Yankees or Angels written all over him, once the Marlins decide he's too expensive. I hope for the sake of the franchise that they do sign him...
UPDATE: Ha -- the price is wrong, Buster! Hanley is staying in Florida for the long-haul. It's shocking that the Marlins are actually spending money, and I couldn't be more pleased. It's been a few years since they last won a title ... though not as long as the Yankees.
