For the love of God Sox fans, don't give up on Alexei Ramirez. He may not be the best SS in all of baseball, but he's one of the better ones, and you don't find that kind of talent easily. It's like...don't expect everyone to be a freaking Mike Trout or something.
Dude has had an OPS below .700 two years in a row. He has never had an OBP over .333. He is no where near of of the better offensive SS in all of baseball.
