Cubs Retain Aramis Ramirez

Wow – an about face on everything we’ve heard lately about Aramis Ramirez.  I was just reading about this complete failure and nodding.  Ken Rosenthal reports that the Cubs have re-signed Ramirez. The deal is for five years and $73MM, a significant hometown discount.  There’s also a mutual option for 2012, his age 34 season.

Did you know 34.6% of Ramirez’s batted balls were flyballs in both 2005 and 2006?  You learn something every day.  Talk about consistency.

The Cubs re-signed Kerry Wood as well.  He got a deal that could reach $6MM if he meets various bullpen and health related incentives.
