What's holding up Ramirez's new deal?

Hanley Ramirez told ESPNLosAngeles.com recently that he's staying out of the ongoing contract negotiations with the Los Angeles Dodgers, leaving that up to his agent, Adam Katz.

“Sincerely, I don’t know what’s going to happen or what’s happening,” Ramirez said. “I want to keep my mind on the game and these are distractions that I don’t want to have. I’m a key piece to help this team daily.”

On Monday, we gained a little more insight into what could be holding up a new deal for the 30-year-old star infielder.
