‘Ramon a Model of Consistency’
4. Ramon Santiago
“Santiago is 35 now, and he had a pretty good
offensive year coming off the bench for the Reds,
hitting .246/.343/.324 in 75 games.
He can play second, short, and third,
and will grab hold of a bench job with some
team this winter.”
Ramon Ends His Season With A...
Ramon walk-off grand slam was the 1st for
the Reds in extra innings since Frank Robinson
against the Dodgers on August 20, 1962.
Ramon is greeted by his teammates at home plate after hitting a Walk-Off Grand Slam
against the Pirates with 2 outs in the bottom of the 10th inning on September 27th, 2014.

“...as strictly a role-playing bench insert, Santiago has earned his way onto next year's 25-man roster.
He's only batting .247, which for a bench player with limited opportunity isn't that bad.
But look at the OBP: At .347, Santiago is a seasoned veteran you can trust to get in the box,
see pitches and make an opposing pitcher labor.
For a team whose leader in walks has played in just 62 games, this is an extremely necessary asset.
His oWAR of 0.8 is decent all things considered. This was a guy who was making over $2 million
a year with the Detroit Tigers the last two years, he clearly has MLB value.”
Final 2014 OBP: .343 (3rd among Reds)

During the telecast of the Reds vs Orioles game on September 4th, 2014
Reds Manager Bryan Price on Ramon:
“He’s always ready and his time is here to play and not
only is he playing well but he’s stepping up offensively,
which is obviously such a big part of what we need right
now, especially down at the bottom of the order.”

Possibly One of the Best Articles a Baseball Player
Could Have Written About Themself
Detroit Manager Jim Leyland:
"Ramon's one of the most popular players on the team, to be honest with you -- maybe the most popular, he's a great guy. He just mixes in with everybody. He means a lot to us -- switch-hitter, can hit from both sides; he makes plays at short or second. Those guys are hard to find."
Former Tiger’s Third Base Coach Gene Lamont
(as reported by Rod Allen from an interview on Tigers Live)
“I’d be hard-pressed to find a better back-up infielder in the American League that can be as steady and has been as steady up the middle at two different positions as Santiago has been at Shortstop and Second Base.”
