BOSTON -- It's hard not to make comparisons between Hanley Ramirez and the great Manny Ramirez given the way the former has been swinging the bat.
Hanley, once projected to be the Red Sox's next great hitter when he was signed as an amateur free agent in 2000, never got his chance to prove his mettle in Boston after being traded to the Florida Marlins in 2005.
Manny, on the other hand, had won a World Series ring the year prior and went on to win another with the club in 2007, cementing himself as one of the greatest hitters of his generation.
