Axi Ramirez-2nd Slam 8/17-3 Run Shot 8/18---------------

Alexei Ramirez' HRs pro-rate to 25 if he had 630 ABs. He`s batting over .300 and has speed. Why the heck isnt he batting 2nd over Pierzynski? :-[

I'm sure he'll move up the order come next season. Ozzie made this change a while back and it has worked well. No need to fix something that isn't broke.

BTW---how is his fielding? He`s eligible for OF, 2B and SS---which is his natural position?

thanks........

He's a natural shortstop and was a pretty exceptional fielder for Cuba
They say that 2B is his third best position, behind (1) shortstop and (2) center field.

The buzz is that Cabrera won't come back to Chicago after this season, so Ramirez is likely to make the move over to short in '09.

Thank for the info. Thats good news for me---I got him cheap in a keeper league.
It does concern me that he gets caught stealing a lot. Is it a matter of speed, or technique?

It's got more to do with his technique than his speed.
The guy is a burner.

Thanks. Somehow I kind of figured that. I hope all his CS wont hurt his future green lights.
I think we could be looking at a 25/20 .300+ SS for 2009.
Not too shabby ;-D

Shh.. don't tell anyone yet. Alxei has a chance to be a great late-round draft pick next year if he gets full PT.
