08:30 AM ET 01.03 | Unless something is lost in the translation, Hanley Ramirez is coming around. [Ramirez] has fallen well short of embracing a move to third base to accommodate fellow Dominican countryman and National League All-Star shortstop Jose Reyes. That appears to be changing. In a Spanish Associated Press story out of Santo Domingo, Ramirez made his most definitive statement to date that a move to third would not be an issue. "I've spoken with [manager Ozzie] Guillen and what we want is to win with the Marlins," Ramirez told the AP on Friday during batting practice at Quisqueya Stadium. "When January comes, we're going to see what happens with the position change and everything else. If it's third base, fine."

why its soo hard to have the right attitude in this generations? h, ramirez all what he has to said its either yes or not, but he should set the example to any player in his own team, ramirez could be in the right mode right now, will have to wait and see if this player hasn't change his mind in the regular season!!!
