Aramis Ramirez wants to stay with Cubs
 
Quote:

CINCINNATI -- Chicago Cubs third baseman Aramis Ramirez said Tuesday that he doesn't think he would waive his no-trade clause, despite the team's struggles this season.

Ramirez is in the final year of a five-year, $75 million contract, and the Cubs have a $15 million option for 2012. The team also has a $2 million buyout option.

"At this point, no, I wouldn't accept a trade," Ramirez said before the Cubs lost to the Cincinnati Reds on Tuesday. "I've been traded before in the middle of the season, and it's too hard. It's hard on the players, it's hard on the family.

"I've committed to the Cubs and the Cubs committed to me. That's why you have these types of contracts. At this point I'm not really interested in being traded, and I don't think I will [waive the no-trade clause]. I took less money to stay here in Chicago for five years, and I plan to honor my five-year commitment."

Ramirez's agent Paul Kinzer said he hasn't been approached about a deal.

"Neither myself nor Aramis has been approached by anyone with the Cubs about a trade," Kinzer said.

They're gonna have to try something with Ramirez if they want to have any chance of landing Pujols in the offseason!

Step 1: Buy out Ramirez and sign him cheaper.
