Line of the Day: June 27th, 2011

Aramis Ramirez doubled, homered twice and drove in three runs in the Chicago Cubs 7-3 victory over the Colorado Rockies. It was his 24th multi-homer game of his career.

Line: 4 AB, 3 R, 3 H, 3 RBI; 2B, 2 HR

My fantasy perspective: Ramirez is starting to show signs of life. In his first 53 games of the season, he had just two home runs, 21 RBI and a .287 batting average. But over his last 19 games, he's homered six times with 16 RBI and a .295 batting average.

If you've held onto Ramirez through the first two-plus months of the season, your patience is starting to be rewarded. He's currently on pace for a .289/60/17/77/0 season, but with a few more hot streaks like the one he's been on and he could easily reach the 25 HR mark.

If you're an owner who's frustrated with owning him, now would be the time to approach the obvious Cubs' fan in your league (HINT: his team is always named the "Chicago Cubs") to see what player(s) he'd trade you in return for Ramirez.
