Five Bold Predictions for the 2015 Boston Red Sox

3. Hanley Ramirez struggles in the outfield

The move from infield to the outfield is a tough one, especially when you have a 37 foot high green wall behind you. Yes, Hanley Ramirez is a gifted athlete and could make a seamless transition to left field for the Red Sox, but I’m betting that doesn’t happen right away.

That being said, I think Ramirez will make the most impact for this team with his bat. Ramirez gives the Red Sox a legitimate clean up hitter to protect David Ortiz in the lineup, something that they’ve been searching for awhile now.
