Featured player: Hanley Ramirez 2008 Bowman gold parallel #66 - Ramirez, the 2008 National League all-star starter at shortstop, went 5-for-6 on Thursday night, including hitting the game-winning home run in the 11th inning, giving the Florida Marlins a 5-4 win against the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Stat wise, Ramirez is probably the best hitting shortstop in the game and I've heard Ramirez compared to an early version of Alex Rodriguez - with his ability to hit for power and ability to steal bases, Ramirez is pushing for a '30-30' season with 23 home runs and 22 stolen bases. He is currently hitting .312 with a .390 on-base percentage and a .569 slugging percentage.
