"I'd rather take the three days off," said Aramis Ramirez. Now we have Scott Rolen :P
It's a major dissapointment but I can understand the desire for 3 days off. He already told his family he was coming home and didn't want to cancel out on them last minute.
It seems like it would have been good for his next contract to be coming off an All Star year. In the end you have to do what you want.
