Ramirez and Pena

Ramirez, Pena, and Lahair all want to play for the Cubs next year. How much of this will happen? It's very unclear with the GM job up in the air. Ramirez wants a 2-3 year deal, I'm not sure about Pena.

I don't have any problem with keeping these people. They've both been pretty good. I don't see a better way to replace them. If both are kept LaHair might go to Japan. I'd be a little sad to see him go but you can't have 2 first basemen. It's possible LaHair could have a pinch hit, sporadic start in the outfield also, which might be preferable to going to Japan for him. I suspect his defense in LF is pretty bad for a career first baseman though, so I wouldn't want him to play many games there.
