Trade the bum!

The Marlins have lost five in a row. Do you want to know who's not at fault? Hanley Ramirez:
Going into Monday’s game against the Braves, they were 5-20 in games in which Ramirez did not start as opposed to 50-39 when he did.
With Monday's loss, that's now 5-21 without Ramirez starting. Small sample size, I know, but keep that stat in mind the next time you hear someone complaining about Hanley for any reason. He's way below his yearly WAR pace (1.3 so far this year, compared to 29.9 in five previous seasons, according to Fangraphs), but let's not pretend to like seeing him replaced by a platoon of Emilio Bonifacio and Alfredo Amezaga.
