I’m not saying the guy should be making $4-5 million, but he can’t be up over $1.5 million a year?
Ramirez, who made $1,225,000 last year, batted .282 last year, with 18 home runs, 70 RBIs and a .431 slugging percentage. He’s had 140 or more hits the last three seasons, low strikeout numbers and a high fielding percentage.
Sure, he’s error prone, but so is Derek Jeter. I think Ramirez deserves a little more than this.
