Aramis Ramirez Is Happy.

But he's still slow and a gimp, I'd assume.

ESPN wrote an article on Ramirez's excitement regarding the signing of Alfonso Soriano. First of all, I really hate the recent trend in newsmedia to keep names off of articles. If some intern wrote the story, put his name on it. ESPN interns, I'd assume, get the short end of the stick for all of the research and leg-work required of borderline-professional journalists. They deserve some credit. Especially when they spend time off of work at Boston Market getting Harold Reynolds fired. I can't believe that every one of those "Report: T.O. Sees Shadow, Comes Out; Long, Gay Winter Ahead" articles is committee written. And if Rob Neyer is writing them, they're probably about how the National League and Albert Pujols suck, and we at THS will find a way to make fun of it.

But more importantly, here is the fourth paragraph of the article:

Ramirez's contract contains a full no-trade clause for the first four years and a limited one for 2011. He can opt out after the 2010 season, and the deal contains a mutual option for 2012.

He can opt out? Again?

Maybe Hendry was so wrapped up in re-signing Aramis that he forgot why he had to re-sign him in the first place. But it's more likely that Hendry doesn't expect to be around after this season and just gave A-Ram whatever his agent wanted.

I guarantee you when the Cubs suck in three years and they have a choice between letting Ramirez go, eating Soriano's salary, or designating Jason Marquis for assignment, the Cubs will have Neifi playing third.

(I think I speak for all of us here at THS when I say that we will not live to see the day that Jason Marquis wears a Cubs uniform.)

Hendry was gone before Aramis got signed. So, MOOT.

Also: Jason Marquis sucks ass. But really, if you want to talk about odds, even if Jason Marquis signs next week (god forbid), you could probably get decent odds that I won't live that long.

The point is not moot because if you watch someone else shoot himself in the foot, you don't do it to yourself.

also, i like your metaphor, but i think my friend Jay said it best (he was trying to explain the concept of crazy women): "Look, I don't blame fire for being hot, but that doesn't mean I'm gonna stick my fuckin' hand in it."

Neifi at third, Mabry at first, Hollandsworth in center, and Borowski closing games. Meet your 2010 Chicago Cubs.
