Aramis Ramirez Undecided about 2011 Option

I'm not really sure why he's undecided. It seems like an easy choice to me. Although, with the team being bad, maybe he does want one last long term deal. But for a guy who's been on the DL for extended time the last two years, I'm not sure what team would give him one. He also seems really skeptical about the current state of the team: "They don't know what they're going to do at first, or second," he said. "I'm sure they'd like to add a couple relievers in there, probably another starter. They have more things to worry about than me right now." "It doesn't matter," he said. "I don't think a $6 or $7 million manager is going to make any difference. You've still got to have good players. That's the key." It sounds like he's genuinely torn; 16M for one year, or chance at contention with another team. As a Cub fan I think I would be happy if he doesn't exercise the option. He's done really well since the All-Star break, but he's obviously breaking down. His strikeout rate is the highest it's been in his whole career. His wOBA is the lowest of his career. In the end I would probably expect him to exercise it.
