what is this warm weather stuff??? he does well where ever he has been...hes considered one of the better power hitting 3B men in the league and hes played in Pitt and the Windy city??? i don't think the cold weather has affected him as the 38 homers, 116 rbi and a .292 average this year look darn good in my eyes...

i have to say it will be VERY disappointing if he leaves ChiTown...

I'll be disappointed for the Cubs but happy for Aramis (and I'm a HUGE Cubs fan). Read the article linked in my sig...Ramirez's career April/May numbers are TERRIBLE and he always seems banged up at the beginning and end of seasons. I'd love for the Cubs to somehow sign him AND get something in return for a trade for him...ARam could be a 40+ hr a year guy in a warmer climate.

I live in Chicago, and I'm a huge Cubs fan. From what I've heard, Aram wants to stay in Chicago, and will do so if they pay him what he feels he's worth (or, I assume, match any offers). From what I've heard from Hendry, they have every intention of doing that. They can't afford to lose his bat. So I see him staying on the north side. That said, I wouldn't be that sad if he left, for three reasons. One, the afforementioned nagging injuries. Two, he's the laziest player I think I've ever seen (turns doubles into singles, or worse yet, outs), and three, he's an inconsistent defensive third baseman with limited range. I am an Aramis owner, too. He has hit nearly twice as many homers on the road as at home (25-44), with better avg, rbi, runs as well. Something about the friendly confines doesn't agree with him...my theory is, it's the pressure put on by fans. Like New York, the stadium's always full, and the fans (who are negative for good reason) can turn on a player in a matter of days. I think Aramis would do well to get out.

Great. Hope Chicago has plans to find a new 3B. We'll probably be stuck with Scott Spiezio next season. :-[
