10:31 AM ET 09.08 | Hanley Ramirez says he's having a blast playing for the Dodgers, calling his teammates "unbelievable" and Matt Kemp a great team leader. He says his repaired shoulder is allowing him to play at 100%, proclaiming overall, "I'm different now. "Everything that I have heard said about me has only made me stronger; even though the L.A. fans knew what was out there and being said about me they still accepted me. I want to prove myself to them so from now on they'll have my back and let everyone know, you don't talk about Hanley like that." For those who question his attitude, he says he's all about winning.

He's behaved himself so far, but you have to feel like he's a ticking time bomb.

I think he's in a good spot. He's not the star on that team, just another player. The burden of having to carry the whole team has been lifted, and now he can just go out and play.

Not4Nutten but, he was in a no win situation in Miami, it was time for him to leave, he will flourish in LA, they got the right people around him both on and off the field!

He has had a good month; but it is the next couple of years that will tell. Glad he has gotten a fresh start, hope he doesn't waste it.

Every guy who ever came up before a parole board has said the same thing.

He's an arrogant prick. "You don't talk about Hanley like that." Whatever. He is a ticking time bomb, though, and it's only a matter of time before his not being the center of attention gets to him and he starts acting out.

seems like the laughter in boston gets louder every time the super stars do nothing. boston sure found a way to screw the dodgers and the high salaries. also, as soon as the dodgers run out of luck, they will be in the basement for looong time. this hot dogs they have are next to worhtless. rich, but worthless.
