Will Carroll: Cubs Near To Aramis Ramirez Extension
Aunt Jemima (Atlanta): If Aramis Ramirez leaves the Cubs as a free agent, any chance the Cubs would be smart enough to pick up Edwin Encarnacion, a player that the Reds seem to unappreciate? Which guy would they be better off with?If you were thinking, as I was, that the Angels might have a shot at picking him up in the offseason, well, maybe not.
Will Carroll: I don't think Ramirez will leave. In fact, I think the deal's essentially done to keep him.
Encarnacion? Sure, Krivsky traded Lopez and Kearns but that doesn't mean that every GM can pillage his roster, does it?
