Chicago Cubs Top Home Run Hitters – Number Six: Aramis Ramirez
Aramis Ramirez was one of the most consistent home run hitters ever to don a Cubs uniform. Chicago acquired him midway through the 2003 season, and other than an injury-shortened campaign in 2009, Ramirez absolutely raked.
In those other seven seasons, he hit at least 25 dingers, and he knocked in at least 83 runs. He smashed more than 30 homers three times and drove in more than 100 runs in four seasons.
Rameriz went to two All-Star Games and won the Silver Slugger once. He also pounded at least 30 doubles six times. He wasn’t just about the long ball either. He hit over .300 five times while with the Cubs.

Ramirez won’t ever be a member of the Hall of Fame, but he had a tremendous career with the Cubs. He and Derrek Lee anchored the corner infield spots for several years and formed a powerful duo.
