Mattingly compared Hanley Ramirez to which other Ramirez?

Manny. You know, the Manny being Manny one.
Ramirez is batting .485 with two doubles, four home runs and 11 RBI during his last nine games.
“Hanley’s really good. None of this stuff surprises me,” Mattingly said. “He can really hit. I was watching him tonight, and I’m thinking of Manny (Ramirez). Honestly, when you see him you think like that. He’s that good. He’s a special talent.”
