Aramis Ramirez doesn't plan on leaving the Cubs this year. The Cubs' third baseman said prior to a 6-1 win over the Phillies on Monday that he would invoke his 10-and-5 rights and void any deal presented to him. Ramirez has 10 years in the big leagues, and five with the Cubs. FOX Sports reported the Angels were inquiring about Ramirez prior to the July 31 Trade Deadline, but he said he's not going anywhere. "I'm at the same point I was at two weeks ago, three weeks ago," said Ramirez, who homered in the first inning against the Phillies. "Right now, I'm not interested in any trade." The father of two young sons, Ramirez said he didn't want to relocate because of his family. "It is my family consideration," he said. "If I was single and by myself, then I'd move anywhere and be in a hotel for the last two months [of the season]. It's too tough with my family. I earned the right to be in this position and it's my decision."
