Aramis Ramirez: Voice of Reason

Chicago Cubs News

It’s easy to (1) put too much stock in Opening Day results, as you’ve waited for months and months to see “real” baseball, and (2) put too much stock in a blowout, in either direction.

Chicago Cubs third baseman Aramis Ramirez wants you to chill out.

”I don’t think it’s disappointing at all,” Ramirez said of the Opening Day blowout loss. ”They’ve got to understand this is a long season. This is just a game. It don’t matter if you lose 15-1 or 2-1; it’s still a loss.

”Opening Day don’t mean anything. You want to win ballgames early in the season. The more games you win now, the less you have to win later. But it’s just a game.”


Boom. Ramirez’d.
