View Full Version : Aramis looking for big money

02-23-2005, 12:36 PM

Ramirez says he is looking for a four year deal worth anywhere from 10-13 mm a year from the Cubs.

That seems like a hefty amount for someone's whose numbers have ballooned while playing at Wrigley. To tell you the truth, I don't know if I am in the minority or not, but 10 million a year for Aramis? I certainly would not want to pay him 13 mm a year.

EDIT: Just realized that this should be in What's the Score? I keep forgetting about that forum. I apologize in advance.

I heard he is planning on hiring Boras as his agent.

That was already posted here. (http://www.whitesoxinteractive.com/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=45242)

Actually...I think he's probably worth it to the Cubs

Man, I can't do anything right. I saw it listed, and thought it was recent news. Sorry.

Considering the Cubs need him, and got him for NOTHING .......
He is in the Drivers Seat .......... I WOULD SOAK THE CUBS BIGTIME.
BIGTIME. They better offer him a blank check ...........
I hope DEEPLY he takes them to the cleaners. please please Aramis,
soak that team .......

Aramis is easily in the top tier of 3rd baseman in baseball, he'll get about 44M over 4 years from the Cubs. To quote Baker: "The dude can hit, man".

This guy has become a star over the last 2 years. I get so pissed when I think about the trade from the Pirates. One of the best 3Bs in the game for Bobby Hill?:angry::angry:

Besides Rolen and maybe Glaus and Beltre, who is better than Ramirez? I don't really count ARod because we all know he should be at short.

C'mon Ramirez! Milk the Cubs out of as many dollars as possible!
