Guardians Reflect on Ramírez and his Legendary Night

“I think he’s the best player in the league,” Josh Naylor said of Ramírez. “I’m privileged enough, blessed enough to play with him and learn from him. We’re blessed as an organization to have him. I think we all try to learn from him. He’s a good leader, great ball player, and his game speaks for itself.”

“It’s just an honor to play with him and hit behind him.”

“I think everyone in here will say the same thing: He’s (Ramírez) the best player in the game,” Guardians starter Aaron Civale said.

Guardians outfielder Myles Straw: “He just prepares really well. He knows what he’s going to do going into that at-bat. Knowing what the pitcher’s got and he always has a plan. And it kinda shows. He hits the ball hard every single time and he does it on both sides of the field.”
