9/21 No Ramirez in Cubs lineup
Has Aramis Ramirez played his last game as a Cub at Wrigley Field? He will not start Wednesday’s home finale against the Brewers. Ramirez came out of Tuesday’s game with a mild strain of his right quad and was listed as day to day. DJ LeMahieu will start at third. Although Ramirez said his agent had not spoken to anyone on the Cubs about next season, there were reports that Paul Kinzer will chat with Cubs interim GM Randy Bush on Thursday. The Cubs have a $16 million option for 2012. They have until five days after the World Series ends to pick it up.
Here’s the lineup for Wednesday:
— Carrie Muskat
