5/3 Early bird

Aramis Ramirez was taking grounders at third base early Sunday, testing his left leg. He could be in the lineup in the series finale vs. the Marlins if he passes all tests.

It’s a beautiful day to retire No. 31.

Carrie, any idea if any other managers have played short (one player) for such a long period of time due to the GM deciding not to place that player on the DL? It’s been close enough to the 15 days (IF Ramirez plays today) that if the Cubs had a more intuitive, savvy GM that would have called up at least a HITTER, not necessarilly a third baseman it would have given Lou more options in tight ballgames. I just don’t see the sense or gain by not putting Ramirez on the DL, waking up every morning HOPING that he can play. There’s gotta be a hidden agenda, this is too lame.
