Stop lumping Lee with Ramirez


I keep seeing over and over end that Lee and Ramirez are single handedly dragging the team down and poor Lou  is helpless to stop it. Lee is definitely well below average but he is drawing walks. Lee's BA is 70 points higher than Ramirez and his OBP and slugging percentage 100 points higher then Ramirez. Lee  gets on base a little more than one in  every 3 at bats, Ramirez slightly less than one in four. This is a huge difference, in fact in many games it can be the difference between winning and losing.. Randy Wells , Ryan Dempter & Xavier Nady all have higher BA, OBP & slugging percentage than A-Ram. A-Ram is making Mario Mendoza of Mendoza line fame look like Pujols. LIke everyone else I really hope  he breaks out of it but until he does he must play WAY down in the lineup and get some games OFF. Don't tell me the Cubs can't win without A-Ram being "himself" because  right now they are losing by continuing to let him play everyday in a key lineup spot. One can certainly wonder if the Cubs would have won more games if Ramirez had taken a few games off and battted 7th or 8th for the last few weeks.
