It would me. I don't think that Beckham has the arm for SS (he certainly may have the range), and I absolutely LOVE the growth that Ramirez has shown as a MLB SS over his tenure here with the Sox. I remember when he was at 2B his first year here that I thought he was going to be a great SS...and then his first year he fell flat on his face and was horrible in the field...and then the year after proceeded to have a Gold Glove-caliber season (damn you, Derek Jeter).
I won't lie and say that he's the best SS in the league, but I still think that he's one of the best in the field. So far this year he's been solid, even with a rotating 2B. When Beckham comes back, I expect him to return to being a top 3 SS.
I think it would be a mistake to let him go or to trade him.
