Hanley Ramirez cons Shin-Soo Choo out of second base
With all the talk of rookie sensation Yasiel Puig this season the real catalyst for the Dodger success is LA shortstop Hanley Ramirez. He is the unsung hero for the National League West division leaders. Dodgers are 17 and 5 in their last 22 ballgames and leading the division by a half game. It all starts with the team’s best player, Hanley Ramirez. On Thursday night he pulled a fast one on Cincinnati Reds Shin-Soo Choo.
With Choo on first base and Joey Votto at the plate, Votto sends a ball softly to center field for a base hit. Choo makes it to second with the slide but for some reason he thought Hanley beat him to the bag . Watch what happens next.

Complete meltdown! Don’t you just love Vince Scully? Needless to say Shin-Soo was called out. Joey Votto tried yelling at Choo to stay at second but it was too late. Luckily the Reds won the game 5-2 and everyone can about it. Here is the tweet that involved the play.
“They ought to give the #Dodgers Hanley Ramirez an Oscar or at least an Emmy.” -Vin Scully
