If the following article is still valid, the Cuban League regular season is only 90 games long:
http://www.mlb.com/news/article.jsp?ymd ... &c_id=null

90 games x 6 seasons = 540 games

Using this figure as a baseline, it can be deduced that Ramirez only missed 19 games total over the past six years. ;-D

Any word on how many walks to expect? I'm in an OBP league, so while the high BA is nice, I'd also like to see some OBP numbers.

YES! I spend a whole buck on him at auction and hope he gets 400+ AB this year (and of course does well)! That would be huge for me!

90% of my posts are from complaining about my team :)

Well, he's starting on opening day ... maybe if he keeps tearing the cover off the ball, they'll find a permanent spot for him.

From Sportsline:

News: The White Sox will open the season with rookie Alexei Ramirez starting in center field, according to MLB.com. He hit .358 with two home runs in 67 at-bats this spring.

Analysis: Ramirez will likely man center only until Jerry Owens can return from a tear in his groin. The Cuban can also man a few infield positions, though, so he has plenty of value in AL-only leagues. Mixed-league owners shouldn't completely keep him off their radar either.
