Turns out Aramis Ramirez is not out of his mind after all.
The Cubs third baseman had been hinting that he might opt out of his contract, leaving at $14.6 million on the table for next season, which as we've discussed is not an advisable move for a guy batting .242. But Monday night he told the Chicago Sun-Times he is staying in Chicago.
"Yes," he said of his plans to return. "I'm leaning on it."
"I'm staying here,'' he said. ''Put it that way."
Upon hearing the comments, Ramirez's agent ordered that new Blu-ray player he's had his eye on.
