April Baseball: Alexei Ramirez

One thing everyone is aware of is that what a player does in April is probably not how they will do by September.  25 games out of 162 is a very small sample size.  However, that doesn’t mean we haven’t learned anything about players during the first 3 weeks of the season.  In “April Baseball”,…
