Aramis Ramirez is due back maybe as early as the Atlanta series next week. This almost has to provide a lift. Prior to tonight’s game, the Cubs’ 3rd basemen were hitting .260/.336/.426 cumulatively, with 10 HR. In only 66 PA, Ramirez accounted for four of those home runs and a .364/.417/.591 line. And, although this is probably not meaningful, the Cubs are 11-7 in games Ramirez plays this season and 25-30 without him.
