Upon hearing the news that Chicago Cubs third baseman Aramis Ramirez is likely headed to the disabled list because of a sore thumb, my first thought was, what took so long? This is a reliable, veteran player, and while he has missed more playing time than most top 50 options in his career, he has always hit for power and average.

Through two ugly months of this season, Ramirez hasn't done that. He's been terrible. Something tangible must have been wrong for this guy to hit .168 over two months.
