A report from San Francisco Chronicle writer Henry Schulman said National League All-Star manager Bruce Bochy told ESPN he probably will name Aramis Ramirez as Placido Polanco's replacement in Tuesday's game. But the Cubs said Sunday that Ramirez has opted not to go. "Today is the last day so I already have my plans with my family," Ramirez said after the Cubs lost to the Pirates on Sunday.. "It's just too late. Yesterday, probably ... I showed up this morning and they told me. No chance. I couldn't make it. " Ramirez said Saturday that he didn't care if he was chosen or not, and had plans to travel back home to the Dominican Republic.
