Hanley Ramirez is Boston's newest emergency catcher, apparently

The Red Sox gave Hanley Ramirez the day off for Sunday's Mother's Day matchup against the Blue Jays, but he was hardly content to just sit back and relax. After all, even when you're not in the lineup, there's always something you can do to help the team.
