Ramirez is really playing some poor defense right now, though, I don't know if people are willing to give him a pass because this entire Sox team seems to have checked out for the season, but (and I would have agreed with you up a week ago without even thinking about it) I really have a hard time stating that Ramirez > Beckham on defense right now, even when you factor in the relative importance of the positions they play.
