Aramis An NL All Star

By bullpenbrian at 07.07.2011 Leave a comment.

Another one-run loss for the Cubs, and another bomb for Aramis.

Ramirez, last week named the NL Player of the Week, remains one of the hottest hitters in baseball.

His 14th HR of the season wasn’t enough offense Wednesday night, but the slugger has virtually carried the Cubs’ lineup during the past two weeks.

Over his last 14 games…he’s batting .375 with an MLB-best nine home runs, including three doubles, 15 RBI & 16 runs scored.

His 1.381 OPS during the run is only second to the Rockies’ Carlos Gonzalez.

Meanwhile, Aramis’ power surge has him on course to reach his career-best 17 HR before the A.S. break, set in 2008.

Lord knows the NL could use a hot bat in the Mid Summer Classic. Any reason Ramirez shouldn’t be a 2011 NL All Star?
