Aramis Ramirez gets no love

Postby crip » Wed Jun 16, 2004 2:11 pm

I've noticed that Aramis Ramirez gets very little love here in the cafe

Why????

The guy is hitting .323, 14 HR, 49 RBI

He is a legit 3rd base stud and he is always like the last 3rd baseman mentioned in here

May I ask why??

He gets some love but not as much as he probably deserves. I would assume that it's mainly because he isn't a glamorous name and also because he never continued what he started in 2001. It's all about what have you done for me lately??

how does he not get love? he's like .315/15/45-50 right now, which looks to be as good as, if not better than his quality 2001 season.

and his D has improved, partly in thanks to solid quality 1B played by derrek lee.

I think part of the problem is how deep and well preforming this position is this year. Especially if your league lets you play Cabrera and Mora there. I have Ramirez and love his production, I can't wait till Sosa gets back and if Lee keeps his current run up, you might be looking at a 320/40/130 hitter at the end of the year. 290/30/105 at worst which is still damn good!!

i have been saying this for months... aramis ramirez is an afterthought in here... i traded beltre for him before the whole bone spur thing when beltre was white-hot and have never looked back...

aramis is holding it down for me and the scary thing is hes only 24 with a lifetime of experience... you better believe he's gonna continue get better and better and he's in the perfect situation to flourish in the pinstripes...

i believe that he could easily become one of the best third basemen in the next 2-3 years. ;-D

I got lucky and picked him up off waivers (guy in my league dropped A-Ram for Beltre around week #2 of the season).

Good thing too, because I was one of the unfortunate people who drafted Ensberg.

Why doesn't anyone in my league drop anybody good? All I hear about is leagues having Huff, ARamirez, etc on the wire that is unreal, I am so jealous... i think my best FA pickup was Bellhorn!!!
