Dodgers, Aug. 23-25: Hanley Ramirez
The Dodgers are 42-9 in their last 51 games, the best in baseball. While many attribute the recent surge to unpredictable rookie Yasiel Puig, it has also coincided with the return of third baseman Hanley Ramirez. Ramirez has been limited to 59 games this season because of injuries, but when he’s been in the lineup, he has compiled a .356 batting average and an OPS over 1.000. There are several former Red Sox on the Dodgers (anyone heard from Adrian Gonzalez lately?) but Ramirez is the most dangerous.
