Hanley Ramirez’s bat has been missing like the lost ark for some time now. So when he belted a line drive home run off Jose Quintana in the sixth inning of tonight’s game — a game we eventually lost — it seemed like a good thing. But Hanley wasn’t done. Upon returning to the dugout, he hijacked the NESN cameras, offering a bit of performance art that I could only interpret as his imitation of a guy who’s pretty pissed about all the stuff we’ve been saying about his lack of offense.
There were other things that happened tonight. Like a Koji meltdown and a near-home run for Xander that some Monster seat denizens appeared to interfere with and transform into a double. There was probably more, but we lost and June sucks so let’s not even talk about it, okay?
