Hanley the Prankster?
What a comic, that Hanley Ramirez. He posted an Instagram photo sitting in a plane with a caption “To Los Angeles .. Good news!!!” and the twittersphere concluded a contract extension was imminent.
One of his agents said Hanley was “messing around” with the posting and actually was on a flight to the Dominican Republic. Meanwhile, Dodgers officials arrive this weekend in Orlando for the Winter Meetings. A Ramirez extension is on the club’s off-season to-do list, but nothing appears imminent. — Ken Gurnick
