Aramis Ramirez Is "Ready To Move On" With Cubs

Following Tuesday's game, Cubs third baseman Aramis Ramirez told Paul Sullivan of the Chicago Tribune he believes he's played his last game as a Cub at Wrigley Field.

Ramirez left the game early with a mild quad strain, then spoke with reporters about the possibility of this being his final game at home as a Cub:

"Probably," he said. "There's a good chance. I'm a free agent and I don't know what's going to happen. But it looks like I'm going to hit the market." The third baseman didn't stop there, adding "I think we're ready to move on," in reference to him and the Cubs.

Earlier today, there were reports the Florida Marlins are targeting Ramirez this off-season. Last week, Ramirez said he wants a multi-year deal if he hits the open market.

The 33-year-old has bounced back nicely from a poor 2010 campaign,  hitting .308/.362/.509 with 25 homers in 616 plate appearances.
