Fredi Gonzalez said the situation would likely be resolved today, and, sure enough, it seems Hanley's willing to cooperate. Employing my trusty Google translator:
"I regret that this has gotten so ugly, it was not my intention to create a distraction," Ramirez told ESPNdeportes.com on the phone from San Luis.
"I feel that things have reached these levels, the team and the fans do not deserve it," he said. "Here we are all professionals and we are pulling for the same side, I will try to close this chapter and focus on playing ball," added Ramirez.
The Marlins played two games without Hanley. They went 1-1. In the end, after discussing this story around the clock with so many words, what the world can take away from the Hanley Ramirez incident is nothing. Time well spent.
