I have NO knowledge i am NOT an insider just a sports fan, who saw some chatter on the internet that EEI then started talking about. Google Hanley Ramirez on twitter and see what you can find. Some no one on twiiter is tallking about a murder in the DR but he appears just to be someone spreading rumors for fun, Minihan sent out a tweet teasing this about 20 minutes ago...

Twitter doesn’t have anything solid except for this:


EDIT - Michelle McPhee says:

#HanleyRamirez, former @redsox infielder, has some.. well, issues. Being eyed in connection with an ongoing federal and state investigation. Stay tuned.

I have a hard time believing it's PED's. His performance wasn't good enough to have been using them :p Only half kidding here.

My sources tell me that the real Hanley Ramirez is dead, and the guy we’ve been seeing the past year plus has been Aaron Hernandez wearing Hanley’s face.

Lots of correctional officers paid off. Hundreds of thousands in plastic surgery.

But it explains why he’s sucked so much at baseball recently.

Afternoon hosts on a rock station down the hall from EEI. Makes no sense that they get this "exclusive" rather than Dale and Keefe unless, you know, there's not a lot of veracity to it.
OR for arguments sake, she is a buddy of one of those two jocks, or someone at the station...

There’s zero chance we get out of paying him this season, right?
I would think even if there's some sort of morality clause in the contract, since they released him and have now disavowed knowledge of any investigation (doubling down on the "baseball decision" reasons), I don't think they could make any claims to have the deal voided at this point. In other words, I think he'd still have to be on their roster if and when charges were filed or arrests were made for them to have any chance of getting out of paying the remainder of the deal.

Who is this guy?
Looking at his twitter profile, some yahoo nobody. Either he stumbled into the scoop of a lifetime or he's no different than that guy on Reddit who fooled people into thinking the Patriots were about to make a big trade a couple weeks ago.

If Minihan actually said on the air that Hanley was involved in a murder and he wasn’t he should be fired immediately.

For once I believe the Red Sox when it comes to ex players. Whatever Hanley did would have ended in a Globe story, before Hanley had cleaned out his locker.

Not to add to much fuel to the fire, but this tweet seems interesting, apparently from some ex-NBC Sports guy:

Also shout out to @jon abbey abbey for closing the thread! Good work guys
Hey, my pleasure. I'm banning you for another week now since you've chosen to come back and add nothing except empty gotchas when you had zero content to begin with.

Did the police have the perp actually FaceTime Hanley while he was pulled over? Because that’s hysterical.

“Hi Hanley, it’s me, could you do me a favor and tell the cops the crack is yours?”

Some random guy got busted for possession and he happened to know Hanley (well enough to be able to facetime him). So because the bust happened to coincide with when Hanley was released, it must be related? Seems like a huge stretch to me.

Unless Hanley is actually the drug kingpin of Lawrence, this seems like a whole lot of nothing.

Also interesting that this just broke, but people knew it was going to yesterday evening
edit: Original tweet is from 2014, reply saying he's going to be famous was from yesterday

This was on Sportshub:

“Obviously, I know absolutely nothing about sports or Hanley Ramirez’s stats, but what I do know is crime,” McPhee said on The Sports Hub. “And there has been some reports about a FaceTime phone call that was made between a man during a car stop. After that car stop, police recovered a significant amount of drugs. And during that car stop, the suspect claimed that one of the items found in the vehicle belonged to Hanley Ramirez and then FaceTimed [Ramirez] in front of police. And that car stop coordinated with the timing of his release from the Red Sox.”

McPhee reported that the suspect who was pulled over — a person who was not Ramirez — was found with “435 grams of fentanyl as well as a large amount of crack cocaine.”

But it would seem to answer the question lots of people were asking about the timing of his release. Not surprising that his lack of hitting was leading to a release but it seemed to happen much sooner than everyone thought.
