2010 Aramis Ramirez, in a Picture
If you are a Cubs fan, and you do not visit Tim Souers' Cubby-Blue site, you are committing a great disservice to yourself. Souers is the Novocaine that keeps us Cubs fans from the pain of our root-canal-like seasons.
Concerning Aramis Ramirez, I think we can safely say that he will return to form sometime soon. Right now, he's sporting a ridiculously terrible .183 BABIP, meaning he's been very unlucky. His plate discipline numbers are not too far from where we expect him to be, but the results have been fewer line drives, fewer ground balls, and way more fly balls -- yet those flies have not left the yard like they used to.
Ramirez will get back to his powerful ways; the tragedy is that I don't think it will matter. :(
