"Whatever it takes for us to win, I’m willing to do," Ramirez told Biertempfel. "I don’t really know what to expect. It’s not going to be easy, put it that way. Talking with Pedro (Alvarez), I know there’s a lot that’s different between playing third and first."
Ramirez spent the first 5 1/2 years of his career with the Pirates. The club acquired him from the Milwaukee Brewers prior to the non-waiver trade deadline.
