Cubs keep Aramis Ramirez

Ken Rosenthal is reporting that the Chicago Cubs have retained Aramis Ramirez, signing him to a deal believed to be five years at about $70 million.

A lot of money for Ramirez, although only slightly more than Adrian Beltre got from the Mariners a couple of years ago, and Ramirez is a much better player than Beltre.

This is also bad news for the Angels, who supposedly had Ramirez near the top of their shopping list.
