7/19 On the positive side …

Aramis Ramirez is on a hot streak. The Cubs third baseman hit a two-run homer Monday, his 200th with the Cubs. He’s now hitting .364 (20-for-55) this month with five doubles, a triple, six homers and 17 RBIs. Ramirez has hit safely in 15 of his last 19 games since June 26.

* Tyler Colvin hit his 13th home run Monday in his 85th game. Last year at Double-A Tennessee, he hit 14 homers in 84 games with the Smokies.

* Derrek Lee recorded his 42nd career multi-double game and second this year. He is four doubles shy of 400 in his career.

* Mitch Atkins, who followed Carlos Silva, set career highs in innings pitched (four), hits allowed (five) and runs allowed (three).

* And on the down side, rookie Starlin Castro became the fourth Cubs player to commit two errors in a single inning. Castro’s only other multiple error game was May 10 against Florida, which was his Wrigley Field debut.

It’s good to finally hear someone talk positively about the Cubs. After the games, I listen to the Cubs 10th inning show on WGN radio, and the only thing they talk about is how the cubs are not going to catch up to the cards and reds. (and other negative things) Thanks for some positive posts!

AND…let’s not forget about yesterday’s positive article in the SunTimes by Herbert Gould calling for the Ricketts to replace Hendry for the 2011 season. So we got that going for us too!!! You go Herbert!!!
