BOSTON -- It's hard to believe that when the Red Sox signed Luis Jimenez, anybody envisioned him up at the plate with the game on the line.
BOSTON - At the very least, the Red Sox will have to finish this homestand without Hanley Ramirez.
That's if they're lucky.
Almost two weeks after he was suspended for making contact with an umpire on April 19, David Ortiz got his appeal heard Monday.
BOSTON -- His name is Ramirez and he hails from the Dominican Republic, sports dreads with frosted tips, plays an extremely unorthodox left field, and mashes home runs.
