BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2016 The golden age of piracy is believed to have lasted about 10 years, according to Colin Woodard's book on the subject. The golden age of Ramirez lasted about 12 years, beginning with his departure from the Pirates and ending just after his return at the deadline. It was nothing personal, Pittsburgh; Ramirez announced well before the trade was made that he intended to retire after the 2015 season. Who can blame him for feeling as if he'd accomplished all he could? Hanging around for an additional season or two wouldn't have nudged Ramirez any closer to Cooperstown—he lacks the numbers and the faux platitudes (e.g., "best third baseman of his generation")—meaning a ring was the only reward left for him to chase.

And chase he did. You know that saying about teaching old dogs new tricks? Turns out the secret is using a pennant race as bait. A career third baseman, Ramirez moved across the diamond for his first appearances at the cold corner; that and his willingness to partake in a team-wide costume party by dressing as a Ninja Turtle (Donatello, duh) are testaments to his unselfishness. Ramirez's gaudy career stats—at one point he finished with a better-than-average TAv in 12 consecutive years—are testaments to his remarkable talent. Dude could hit.

2015 Thirty-six years old, been dealing with multiple leg injuries over the past couple seasons, produced a .142 ISO that was his lowest since an 18-game stint with the Pirates in 1999. That's not to suggest Ramirez can't still swing the bat (we're not above noticing a .285 batting average), but the overall effectiveness has waned. Knee troubles in 2013 and a strained hamstring in 2014 have caused him to rely more on his upper half, forcing him to begin his swing earlier and giving him less time to identify quality pitches. The walk rate (4 percent) is horrendous and the swinging strike rate (10.8 percent) is his worst since 2003, way back when he was still in Pittsburgh, when it was just him and Tike Redman and Pokey Reese and Adam Hyzdu and Rob Mackowiak and Jeff Reboulet and Kevin Young and—whoops, just fell into the Pirates-nostalgia spiral. Back to Ramirez: Hopefully, he arrives to spring training fully healthy, because you get the feeling that otherwise we're going to be writing the post-retirement career retrospective in this space next winter.
2014 The risk when the Brewers signed Ramirez to a three-year, $36 million contract prior to the 2012 season wasn't that he'd stop hitting. Ramirez hasn't, as his .282 TAv marked his ninth season with at least a .280 mark in the past 10 years. But there was the question of when Ramirez's body, already notably slower and stiffer, would really begin to break down. It did in 2013, as Ramirez played fewer than 100 games for just the second time since 2000. Ramirez's contract is heavily backloaded, with $16 million due in 2014 (and beyond, thanks to options and deferred payments), and with his defense swiftly degrading, he'll have to hit and stay healthy to be worth that kind of scratch.
2013 Consistency, thy nickname is A-Ram. Over the last decade, Ramirez has posted a .294/.355/.526 line and averaged 28 home runs and 98 RBIs per seasonnumbers similar to those he put up last year, and virtually every season since his last year in Pittsburgh. Signed to a reasonable three-year deal to help fill the Prince Fielder power vacuum, Ramirez responded by pacing the National League with 80 extra-base hits (tying Braun) while showing better-than-expected agility and sure hands at the hot corner. He doesnt strike out much for a power hitter, often shortening up with two strikes or when he needs to make contact to drive in a run, and despite a series of nagging injuries he continues to reach the 500-plate-appearance threshold. As Ramirez enters his mid-30s, its fair to wonder how long hell keep this up. But were not quite ready to bet against him.
2012 Cubs fans were ready to cut Ramirez loose in mid-June. The team was struggling and the third baseman was flirting with a .400 slugging percentage and looking old for his years. Recurring hamstring issues over the years have left Ramirez with a doesn't hustle label, and fed-up fans weren't cutting him any slack. Amazingly, his hitting .332/.391/.605 from June 24 on didn't win them back. Ramirez has very good contact skills for a hitter with so much power, and he's never struck out more than 100 times in a season. Contrary to his huge in-season fluctuations, he's been one of the most consistent players in baseball year-to-year, ending every season but one from age 26 to 33 between .294 and .304 TAv. The flourish to finish 2011 may have led Ramirez to decline a $16 million option and an arbitration offer, but he wasn't confident enough to turn down the $36 million in guaranteedbut highly backloadedmoney the Brewers offered in a three-year deal, and the team got a relative bargain, as free-agent prices go.
2011 Between a bum thumb and whatever else, Ramirez was horrific in the first two months, hitting .168/.232/.285 before landing on the DL in early June. Once he came back, he was the A-Ram of old, bopping at a .287/.333/.557 clip. After the season, he said there was more than the thumb holding him back, and he played through a few nagging hurts at the end to boot. All of which brings home the nagging fear that, as he moves deeper into his 30s, he's not the four- or five-win player he was in his prime, and never will be again. His strikeout and walk rates hit low points not seen since his days as a young Pirate, and more disconcerting still has been the near-total disappearance of his rangelike a mime, you can watch him for hours and still not be sure if he moved. His 2012 option is riding on a comeback, but if he simply manages a healthy season, the counting stats will prop up the reputation he earned in the Aughties.
2010 A penchant for nagging injuries and a lack of great athleticism have always inspired questions as to how well Ramirez will age, but as hes moved into his thirties, his bat has remained remarkably consistent. A dislocated shoulder kept him out of the lineup for two months and provided the first long, sour note of a disappointing season at Wrigley, but he returned as strong as ever, crushing lefties and holding his own against righties. A-Ram has been the best hitter on the winningest Cubs teams since Leo the Lip spent his days scowling in the home dugout, yet he never seems to be counted among the Cub greats. Only 32, hell continue to put up cookie-cutter seasons into the foreseeable future and change that perception.
2009 On a visceral level, A-Ram's seen as the bopper in a lineup where so many other players seem to come and go or run hot and cold. Last year's odd random development was his failure to hurt lefties (.239/.333/.388), when he has more usually smote them (.287/.352/.534 career, including 2008). Jeff Bagwell had odd interruptions like that as well, but it shouldn't persist, part of the reason why you can anticipate a continued good run, albeit one short of nearing 40 homers again, as Ramirez did during his age 26-28 peak.
2008 Given that he once had a reputation as an erratic performer, it's ironic that Ramirez has developed into one of the most consistent hitters in baseball. Even more shocking is the fact that he was 18 fielding runs above average at the hot corner last year, a positive result not unique to our system; David Pinto's Probabilistic Model of Range (PMR) listed Ramirez as the fourth-best defensive third baseman in baseball in 2007. Ramirez's defensive issues had always been more a lack of concentration than a lack of ability, and some observers insist he was simply more engaged in the field last year. On the other hand, players can have fluke seasons with the glove just as with the stick, and this could have been the fielding equivalent of Brady Anderson's 1996. In either event, he's one of the more underappreciated stars of the NL.
2007 Ramirez cleaned up this offseason with a $75-million deal that will keep him in Wrigleyville until at least 2011. Make no mistake, this should be a better deal than, Juan Pierre`s Dodger contract, but Ramirez and his former teammate make an interesting comparison. Players with either no power (like Pierre) or no speed (like Ramirez) don`t tend to age as well as players who have some of each. Of the four PECOTA comparables above, only Tony Perez aged gracefully, and Perez`s did it after moving to first base following an age-28 season in 1970 was arguably his best. Still, Ramirez has a decent chance to hold his value as well as Perez did. He`s worked on his defense, he has good strikezone coverage, and his three-year run with the Cubs has been remarkable for its consistency at the plate.
2006 Life in a major market and exposure on a super station have done wonders for Ramirez`s defensive rep just as he`s begun to lose his defensive value. He used to start a good number of DPs from third, but whether it`s a matter of getting older or having Todd Walker on the pivot, that isn`t the case these days. Although he`s apparently never going to become a particularly patient hitter--Ramirez has drawn more than 40 unintentional walks once in his career--he`s still putting runs on the board, and should continue to be one for the next two or three years, or, almost to the end of his Cubs contract.
2005 It was Adrian Beltre's breakout season that received the attention, but Ramirez had a huge year too. The key to Ramirez's development is that he's making contact more frequently36 home runs to 62 strikeouts is one of the more impressive ratios in all of baseball. He may be the rare example of a player who is better when he attacks early in the at-bat: More than half his home runs came when the count was 0-0, 1-0, or 1-1. Like Beltre, Ramirez is younger than he appears in the rearview mirror, having reached the majors at age 21, so there's good reason to believe that the improvement he's demonstrated is going to stick. PECOTA, which foresaw a breakout for him last year, now seems to think that he's overshot the mark slightly. Still, he's probably the Cubs' most valuable position player heading into next year, in spite of his indifferent defense.
2004 Ramirez is not a superstar, and likely will never be, but average players have their value, especially when the alternatives are dim; Ramirez's acquisition was in fact one of Jim Hendry 's best moves. The rap on his defense is that he makes the tough plays but muffs the easy ones, and his 33 errors did nothing to disprove that. He showed flashes of plate discipline while in the minor leagues, and PECOTA seems to think that a breakout is in store. That Ramirez cut down on his strikeouts after becoming a Cub is a good sign.
2003 Bothered by an ankle sprain for much of the season, Ramirezs poor performance in 2002, in a season when he should have had been establishing himself as a star, helped sink the Pirates ship. While Ramirez has one of the strongest arms in the game, his overall defense leaves something to be desired. Off-season reports from winter ball said Ramirez had lost the extra pounds he put on during 2002; a svelte, healthy, and productive Ramirez is critical to Pittsburghs hope of impersonating a bona fide major league team in 2003.
2002 They finally had no choice but to let him play, probably because Ed Spragues agent doesnt have call waiting. Ramirezs season offered just a taste of his skills; he drew far more walks in the minors, so if the Pirates havent ruined his batting eye, he could be the second-best third baseman in the league very shortly. And hes just 24 years old. Littlefields first long-term contract discussion should be with Ramirez's agent; lets hope he does have call waiting.
2001 He got a second chance to claim the third-base job last April, but the Pirates persisted in their impatience and demoted him after a slow start. He got a third chance in August, began to hit and separated his shoulder, effectively ending his season. Aramis Ramirez could certainly stand a little luck, because the Pirates are disinclined to use him, even though he has been their best third-base option since mid-98. Hes a future star if the Pirates just give him a chance.
2000 He obliterated Triple-A pitching at age 21 in his first extended trial, making the Bucs' failure to deal Ed Sprague in July all the more perplexing. The knock on Ramirez is his defense. He made 42 errors this year, but most scouts believe his troubles are fixable and that a move to left field won't be necessary. Regardless of where he plays, he's a potential superstar with the stick. If the Pirates don't start him at third base in April, all Pirate fans should report to the Fort Pitt Bridge.
1999 So now people are calling in to local sports-gab stations, complaining about how Ramirez "didn't do nothing" this year. Never mind the fact that he still can't walk into a bar and get himself a drink (except on the Strip), or that he was two months removed from A-ball when he was called up in May. Between adjusting to defending 3b on turf and adjusting to major-league pitchers, he held his own, and he still looks like a star in the making if he can handle the inevitable struggles of an early call-up.
1998 When players this young make adjustments at the plate and draw walks like Ramirez did, you have to take notice. Only 19, Ramirez drew a mind-boggling 81 walks while slugging .454 in the high-A Carolina League, and he got better as the season progressed, hitting .330 in the second half after he stopped swinging at everything in his ZIP code. Already better than whatever the Pirates throw out there in April. Should be in the majors no later than April 1999.

DateQuestionAnswer
2015-07-23 17:00:00 (link to chat)Thank goodness for the Aramis Ramirez trade. I was afraid that the Nationals were going to have to face Yhonathan Barrios (and $3M) tonight against the Pirates!
(HalfStreet from Fairfax VA)
Seems like they didn't do much better with Liriano. (Mike Gianella)
2015-06-10 14:00:00 (link to chat)If you're the Mets, how much would you give up for a guy like Frazier? Matz and Conforto sound fair or would it have to be more?
(Steven from Long Island)
I don't think I'd trade for a guy like Frazier, to be honest. They'd be better off trading smaller pieces for a one-year fix like Aramis Ramirez. Matz should only be moved for a premium piece, not a 29-year-old third baseman with a year remaining on his contract. I'd think differently if I had any confidence whatsoever that the Mets org had money for an extension. (J.P. Breen)
2014-04-16 19:00:00 (link to chat)Who wins this trade Aramis Ramirez, Nate Eovaldi and Tyler Skaggs for Eric Hosmer Doug Fister and Chris Archer?
(Jason from Uranus)
Is this real? The Hosmer/Fister/Archer side, all day errday. I guess there's some cause to hesitate in redraft leagues, but even then, give me Door No. 2 (Ben Carsley)
2014-04-16 19:00:00 (link to chat)I'm in a 14 team, 6 keepers per team league with traditional 5x5 roto scoring. We also get 20 minor leaguers who can be kept for 3 free years once they pass 120AB/50IP. I'm being offered a deal of Jose Reyes, Aramis Ramirez and either Huston Street or Eddie Butler for David Wright and Matt Lindstrom or Alex Gonzalez. Is the injury history of Reyes/Ramirez too much? Should I not give up the best player in a keeper league? Or does the quantity outweigh those concerns?
(oscarbluth from Madison, WI)
If you can only keep 6 players, I keep the Wright side. If you think you can win it all this year with another closer and some speed, then pull the trigger and pray for health. (Ben Carsley)
2013-02-08 13:00:00 (link to chat)I'm in a 5x5 12 team keeper league (keep 7). Keepers are Holliday, cliff lee, Chris sale, Aramis Ramirez, Billy Butler, Jose Bautista and Allen Craig. Been offered a trade: Craig for Matt Cain. Should I accept and why?
(Fletch from Tierra Del Fuego)
With the caveat that fantasy is absolutely not my thing, I would do that deal for sure. You should be able to replace Craig's offense at 1B fairly easily, and Cain is an elite starter who will almost certainly give you 220 innings a year for the next couple of seasons. So yeah, pull the trigger! (Ian Miller)
2013-01-29 14:00:00 (link to chat)Thanks for the chat, how would you rank 3B Longoria, Beltre, and Aramis Ramirez for next season?
(Noah Braun from SD)
You're welcome, Noah and thanks for the question. I'd put them in precisely that order, both from a fantasy standpoint and in real life. Hopefully Longoria can avoid the disabled list this year. (Daniel Rathman)
2012-07-26 14:00:00 (link to chat)If you were the Brewers' GM, what would you be looking to do at the deadline?
(adambennett from The Batcave)
The Crew is feeling the hangover from last years playoff push, and too many injuries makes it clear they wont be in the playoff picture. So Id sell, just like theyre getting ready to do now. Zack Greinke is a great trading chip, and Id move Aramis Ramirez and maybe Corey Hart if I had toif anyone wants Randy Wolf or K-Rod, Id trade them as well. Also not a Carlos Gomez fan; Ive been hoping theyd dump him for years. They need to restock their farm system with some position prospects to make up for last years fire sale and give a look to Logan Schafer and Taylor Green. They can be competitive again once the teams healthy, so theres no need to dump everyone, but they need to face reality and get ready for 2013. (Michael Street)
2011-02-08 14:00:00 (link to chat)What kind of line would you expect out of Aramis Ramirez this year? Last year was surely disappointing and someone is offering him to me in a fantasy trade for Michael Young and I am tempted...
(What the Funck? from Funkytown)
I am unabashedly a big A-Ram fan, and I expect him to bounce back. His consistency prior to his injuries was amazing. I'd prefer him to Young, but I can certainly understand why others wouldn't agree. (Ken Funck)
2010-10-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Can we expect Aramis Ramirez to rebound into form next yr?
(Matt from Chicago)
His second-half went well (.276/.321/.526) so I guess that injury he went on the DL for was bothering him more than people suspected. Health is a skill too though, and Ramirez has missed significant chunks of the past two seasons. I'm more leery of him from that perspective than from a production one. If he's healthy, he'll mash. (Marc Normandin)
2010-10-01 13:00:00 (link to chat)John mentioned today that the Red Sox may be interested in trading for Aramis Ramirez if they can't sign Adrian Beltre- I'm thinking the Cubs should be all over this, especially if they don't have to pick up much (or any) of his salary. Considering Ricketts says they may decrease payroll, gives them some flexibility to sign Adam Dunn. Guess they have to come up with another third baseman though (Vitters?)...thoughts?
(KRS from Loop)
At this point it doesn't look like Vitters is ready for AA, much less the majors. DeWitt could play third, and they could use some combination of Barney/Baker/etc. at second base (the Cubs organization isn't known for its lack of second basemen). Is it a GOOD idea? I dunno. It's hard to see a scenario where they contend next year anyway. (Colin Wyers)
2010-08-17 14:45:00 (link to chat)Will Aramis Ramirez finish up as a Cubbie? Do teams value him now that he's bounced back from his struggles/injury this year?
(Peter J. Lish from Wrigley)
I don't think his 2012 option will be picked up and he'll finish his career with another team on a below-market contract, producing slightly above average offensively. (Eric Seidman)
2010-07-29 16:30:00 (link to chat)What was the statistical likelihood that Aramis Ramirez and Derrek Lee would both have 85 game collapses? Now that the real Aramis Ramirez has returned, can the real D. Lee be far behind?
(Cousin Michael from Los Angeles)
Hi, Michael! Sorry about your Cubs...both of them were way below their 10th percentile projection so unless their collapses were not independent, so you know as well as I do there was less than a 1% chance that would happen. Of course, their rebounds are probably independent, too. I wouldn't count on a huge return from D. Lee...though he must be better than this, right? (Matt Swartz)
2010-07-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)I'm blinded by my Cubs fandom. Is Aramis Ramirez back now, or was it just a case of Snakes and pitching not mixing?
(mcquown from Chicago)
Remind me next season that if Rodrigo Lopez is in the rotation to pick the team for last place. Ramirez wasn't terrible in June, though it's a small sample, and he's looked great since he came back, though it's also a small sample. Probably worth keeping tabs on or tossing a flyer to if he's available due to someone else giving up in fantasy, but I'm not convinced in the real-world yet. (Marc Normandin)
2010-06-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)What options do the Cubs have with Aramis Ramirez? Seems like too much historical production and cash left in that contract to sit or cut him?
(Sour Lou from Dark Bar in Chicago)
I see a few questions about Aramis, and the answer isn't very upbeat I'm afraid. I thought Patrick Sullivan's take this morning was pretty interesting, and he came to the conclusion that Ramirez really is a bit lost at the plate. His sub-.200 BABIP won't continue, but he hasn't traditionally been a .300 BABIP guy either. I'd be worried, Cubs fans. (Tommy Bennett)
2010-05-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)Aramis Ramirez will hit ___ home runs this season and please do not say 4?
(Sweet Lou from Windy City Doghouse)
5? Seriously, he's in a deep hole. I'll say 15 unless his hand injury is so bad that it either alters his swing or lands him on the DL. (John Perrotto)
2009-10-13 14:00:00 (link to chat)Hi Christina- can Chone Figgins play SS? Wondering if the Cubs should try this, making Theriot a utility guy (assuming Baker is the everyday 2B). Thoughts?
(KRS from Chicago)
I think it's been far too long for Figgins to see him as a shortstop for anybody; I frankly don't know how well a move back to center would go, assuming they make Bradley go away and would be willing to put Fukudome back in right. From your comments, it seems as if Theriot's issue is his thorough adequacy, in a lineup that didn't get enough Aramis Ramirez and had to deal with Soto, Soriano, and Bradley delivering so much less than expected. That's not on Theriot, or at least it shouldn't be. (Christina Kahrl)
2009-06-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is there a real chance that Aramis Ramirez' injury will recur, will need surgery sooner rather than later, and that he won't contribute much this year at all?
(Mike from Chicago)
Chance? Yes. The shoulder has some internal damage and if it's lax, then yes, it could pop out again. I don't think they'll let him back if they feel there's a significant risk, but remember that the injury was a bit of a fluke. He fell in just the wrong way with the wrong force and pow, his shoulder's out. (Will Carroll)
2009-05-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Has the prognosis on Aramis Ramirez been updated at all? I've heard August being thrown out there...that's, what, 12 weeks away. Is the separation really that bad?
(Henry from NJ)
It was a dislocation, not a separation. Ok, demo ... cup one hand, kind of shallow, like a crescent more than a "C". Make a fist with the other and put it in the cupped hand. That's your shoulder. If the fist moves up to the edge of the cup and pops back down, that's a separation. When it comes completely out of the cup and a doctor has to come PHYSICALLY MANIPULATE THE ARM until it pops back in, that's a dislocation and yes, it's as painful as it sounds.

Now, the dislocation is over. It's back in joint. The real problem is what damage did it do? I'll refer you back to UTK for that explanation. (Will Carroll)
2008-11-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)Thanks for the chat Joe. I haven't seen any mention on the site of Aramis Ramirez winning the NL Hank Aaron award. Maybe it deserves no mention, but seeing that it was a fan vote, it can't help the movement to add more voters to the other awards voting pools.
(jtrichey from Indianapolis)
I snuck a mention into one of the extra bits I did for SI.com during the Series. Basically, if the award for the best/most productive/whatever hitter in the league lands on the 19th-best hitter in the league, it ends up looking like a joke. The fans had *a* vote, but I believe their vote was one of many. In any case, you don't build credibility by handing out an award this badly. (Joe Sheehan)
2008-07-03 13:00:00 (link to chat)Evan Longoria or Aramis Ramirez...who do you think will be more productive the rest of the year?
(Matt from Bloomington, IL)
Ramirez. (Jeff Erickson)
2008-06-23 12:00:00 (link to chat)Do you think this weekend's performance finally puts Aramis Ramirez on the national stage? One All Star game? That screams underrated, then again the fans shouldn't be voting anyway, but that is a whole other discussion.
(Goose from Chicago)
Personally, being from Pittsburgh, I've known how good Ramirez is for a long time. He loves the chance to be in the spotlight. While there may no such things as clutch hitting, he seems like to hit with the game on the line. I do think he will finally get his due this year, though. He showed this past weekend just how good he can be. (John Perrotto)
2008-06-03 13:00:00 (link to chat)As a cub fan it's kind of funny, but Aramis Ramirez has been here 5 years and I've hardly ever seen him quoted or interviewed. Probably my favorite cub hitter to watch, what's he like off the field?
(Mike from Chicago)
Very quiet. I get along with him great. You're right, he flies under the radar. He's one of the best players in the game today and doesn't get enough credit because of what you mentioned. (Len Kasper)
