Hot Starts: Alexei Ramirez, Dee Gordon, Masahiro Tanaka, Darryl Strawberry

Alexei Ramirez is soaring in the NIKEiD MVP Elite 3/4 in black/white.  Ramirez is one of the only guys we know that wears Nike’s Shox cushioning.

He’s swinging an Old Hickory lately, and we’ve seen him with the J143 model in the past (Trout’s model).  These are available online.

Chris Colabello is leading the AL in runs batted in.  Its fitting that he’s wearing the ultimate run producer, Big Papi’s Franklin CFX Pro Exclusive batting gloves.  Franklin has made these available to us all—a flat-out power move.

Dee Gordon has been an on-base machine so far this year, but he’s not spending much time at first.  He’s got the greenest light in the Big Leagues, off the leash in a pair of Under Armour Yard Mid ST.

Here’s a fun fact: since Brandon Moss has been an Oakland Athletic, he’s homered once every 13.7 at bats, which is good enough for top 5 in the MLB over that span.  He’s also two-for-two on division titles.

Our research tells us Moss is swinging a Louisville Slugger S328, the same model as another guy who could hit ’em in bunches, Darryl Strawberry.

Strawberry hit 335 home runs in his career, one every 16.17 ABs.  That’s the 29th best home run rate of all time, better than Lou Gehrig and Hank Aaron, among others.

Straw did not get cheated.

He also wore Saranac brand batting gloves, a company who no longer makes batting gloves for baseball.

And to top it all off, the Mickey D’s wristbands:

Guy might be on the Mount Rushmore of Swagger.  Mount Swagmore?

Masahiro Tanaka will get a full profile, but here’s a quick look at his Mizuno Global Elite glove:

This glove looks like it’ll be available in July and can be pre-ordered at this link, but I could only translate what Google allowed me to.
