With all the crap I’d been hearing about Hanley Ramirez over the past 24 hours — shitty teammate, punk-ass attitude, not the kind of fella Jon Lester would want to have pizza with — I made a point of tuning in to his press conference just to see if it veered into snark city.

Turns out, however, the guy’s got a sense of humor. Like when he talked about Pedroia calling him after he got signed:

And when he was asked about his relationship with David Ortiz and responded, stone-faced, “I don’t know that guy,” before cracking up.

Hey, it wasn’t “Peeples,” but it made me laugh.
