According to multiple reports, Aramis Ramirez made the exceedingly difficult decision to pick up his player option for 2011, which guarantees him $14.6 million next year. Yeah, just playin’ about the difficult part.

Ramirez, coming off his worst season since joining the Cubs, was never a real threat to leave. Even if he was sick of being a Cub, his 2011 option was worth as much as 50% more than he would have earned on the open market. Now, he’ll get a year to prove that 2010 was a fluke before cashing in next offseason.
