Ramirez wants his gold medal back

Winning Gold at the 2004 Summer Olympics in Greece is one of Alexei Ramirez' greatest accomplishments of his career. But he doesn't have the medal anymore, as it was lost during his move from Cuba to the United States.

And by lost, he means it was stolen.

MLB.com's Scott Merkin has the story, which is pretty heartbreaking. Ramirez sounds like someone who's come to grips with never getting the medal back, although he still throws a few Hail Mary ebay searches hoping it turns up.

Getting a replacement medal sounds like a frustrating process of navigating through red tape and bureaucracy, although kudos to the White Sox for trying on behalf of their shortstop. Hopefully, someday there will be some closure to this story, although it doesn't look like that's all too likely.
