MOVE RAMIREZ TALK IS GARBAGE
Here’s a big, steaming pile of crap from the Daily Herald’s Barry Rozner. How would he fix the Cubs? Trade their best offensive player in 2007.
Many of their contracts are unmovable, and Alfonso Soriano’s deal is on that list, but the one they might be able to unload is the four years and $62 million remaining on the contract of Aramis Ramirez.
The third baseman is overrated defensively, moves only when it seems to suit him, has taken to running out fewer and fewer groundballs and deep flies, and, as you witnessed last week, is a selfish situational hitter.
Rozner used to write crap like this about Sosa all the time. Which is funny because Rozner mentions Sosa throughout the column.
His suggestion? Move Ramirez and sign A-Rod. Genius!
