Ramon bats against the Twins’ Brian Duensing in the
8th inning on September 25th. The Tigers won 1-0 behind Max Scherzer
21st win and clinched the AL Central Division Title.
Tiger’s Manager Jim Leyland Retires:
“I’m proudest to have the privilege of managing the Detroit
Tigers. But really I’m being selfish, the number of wins, the
number of postseason appearances. I just feel so blessed.
I don’t want to slight anybody, it’s been just as much fun
for me to manage the Ramon Sanitago’s as the Miguel
Cabrera’s or Justin Verlander’s.”
Ramon Might Play
into the Ray’s Mix:
Ramon Santiago- If the Rays find themselves looking for a backup
second baseman, Santiago could be an interesting choice. A switch-
hitting infielder, Santiago doesn’t inspire fear from either side of the
plate but stands out for his defense. A player that can play all over
the infield and impress with his glovework is valuable to any team,
but you know the Rays value that skill-set even more. Santiago made
$2.1M in Detroit and should not require any more than that to be signed
in free agency. If the Rays do not bring back Kelly Johnson, Santiago
would represent a very different option but still one that would
be heavily considered.

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."
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 Shorstop and Second Base.”
