08:09 AM ET 02.04 | What, Hanley Ramirez worry? [Ramirez] was all smiles Saturday. His Dominican team, the reigning champion Leones del Escogido, had just moved to 2-0 in this Caribbean Series with a 6-2 win over Puerto Rico, and the heralded infielder was sharing laughs with coaches, engaging with fans and even yucking it up with the Spanish press here at Estadio Sonora. About 750 miles northwest, though, a Dodgers front office grows uneasy as its prized asset continues to play games outside the U.S. and away from shortstop. Ramirez, naturally oblivious, seemingly feels none of that. Only national pride. ... [Heading into 2013] Ramirez will have a lot of game action under his belt. Problem is, very little of it will come at shortstop.

It would be nice if they informed us exactly which position outside of shortstop he is playing.

I can think of eight others, not including short center.

Who's on first?

At least He is staying in shape and playing ball in the off season . Would of expected the headline to read " Hanley has gained 15 pounds , or got busted with a DUI.

Thanks for splainin that to me. It changes the whole story. How can the Dodgers have a problem with him DHing? It's like he's taking batting practice

If all else fails, trade him to the Marlins for anyone left there!

February 4, 2013  03:24 PM ET

It sounds like he is having fun playing baseball...what a novel concept!

February 4, 2013  08:35 PM ET

wiseup Loria wouldn't want to pay Ramierez contract. That was why Loria traded him before. Loria can't afford him. haha. Trade him to Houston, Seattle Minnesota or Colorado.

February 4, 2013  10:30 PM ET

wiseup: The Dodgers are concerned he will not be played at SS. When Ramierez came to Dodgers from Marlins the Dodgers moved him from SS to 3rd .and didn't seem to concerned. If he DHs than it is a non issue.

February 5, 2013  01:01 AM ET

Really? DH in the National League.
