Ramirez - Should He Stay or Should He Go
Posted 01 September 2011 - 09:00 PM
I'm tired of this I don't care if we can't replace his production at 3B, but we CAN replace his me, me, me attitude and lack of leadership. I say good bye, thanks for the good memories, but good bye.

If, however, the Cubs are going to do a short rebuild (increasingly, I think they should let kids play in 2012 with an eye toward spending big as necessary in 2013), let him go.

The factor that allows me to be more than fine with Ramirez leaving the Cubs is that he brings very little energy to the clubhouse for the younger players, which there are a growing number of. I am not in that dugout with Ramirez. I have no idea what he is like to be around but I can tell enough from his body language that he could not give a rats-ass about the younger players around him. Many times I see him in the dugout and he looks like me at 3 in the afternoon at work.
Veteran players do not have to be best friends with the younger guys but they at least need to bring something to the table as far as helping them out or showing a productive work ethic. He gave fans a lot to cheer about. He should leave with dignity, not a selfish-ass attitude like some people (*Sneeze-talks* Carlos Zambrano).

I believe Brett put it best, if we're "in it to win it" next year, pick up the option and ride out one final ARAM year.. if you rebuild, dump him.. there's no good option next year at 3B and he's got the best numbers on the team. I really don't think he's been the problem for this year that everyone else seems to.
Our pitching has been so bad this year until recently.. even now, it's just average..
