Aramis Ramirez to the Tigers may be more than just pondering now. The 2011 AL Central Champions reached out to the Cubs' former third baseman according to Sports Illustrated's Jon Heyman.

Jon Heymantigers have inquired on aramis ramirez. Good fit. Would be major offensive upgrade.

Heyman's right, Ramirez would be a really good fit in Motown. His bat would be an instant advantage over Brandon Inge, who struggled mightily last season. He would provide another veteran presence and make the Detroit lineup just that much more loaded.

If Ramirez does wind up with the Tigers, it would be constant reminder to the city of Chicago. His play with Detroit could be enough to continue to keep the White Sox at bay and his constant trips to the South Side for divisional play would serve as a storyline for his Cubs ties every time he sets foot off the plane.
