    Funny stuff down in the Extra Innings.
    Extra Innings: The makeup game of the June 16 Cubs-Sox rainout is officially scheduled for Sept. 3 at 1:20 p.m. That means Ozzie Guillen's traditional rant about rats at Wrigley Field is tentatively scheduled for Sept. 2. ..
    I don't know if there are rats at Wrigley (other than the eiu fans who visit), but if visiting players see them, it could play with their mind.

    Dang - I was hoping for a rehab in DSM over the next day or two.

    It will be good to have him back. Hope to see some improvement from entire team, but I guess we'll wait and see.

    I think just having him back in the line-up will help a little bit.

    Like I told my friends last night. I'd rather have us battling all year for a playoff spot, make it, and win a few games in the postseason, rather than dominating the division all year, then getting to the playoffs and laying another egg.

    Nah, I preferred the whole wire-to-wire first place campaign in 2005 when the only time we were looking up at someone was after Game 1 of the ALCS. That is a lot better.

    So you're saying that entire Cubs rosters needs to have career years, and have a blown call go their way in the playoffs?

    I agree. AR isn't going to be a savior, but I'm hopeful that his presence shakes things up. If he can get back to form and start swinging for power fairly quickly, that's take some pressure off the other guys.

    One of two things is going to happen, IMO - either his presense and the change in dynamic will loosen things up and the club busts out of their doldrums, or the rest of the team's malaise sucks him in and we'll see about .220 out of 3B for the remainder of the year.

    I wonder what roster move gets made when Ramirez is activated if its Fox or Blanco that gets sent down or if the Cubs can make a trade or if they just release someone. I doubt its the later or they would have released Miles alread I'd hope

    I'm with you in that I hope it's Miles getting released, but I would be willing to bet that Fuld gets sent back. Fox has just nearly as many RBI as Bradley at this point, and has only been with the team for 3 weeks.

    I think that makes sense. I wonder what would happen after Johnson comes back.

    If they send Fuld back, won't they be pretty heavy on infielders?

    And when did Fuld get sent up, I coulda swore he played in DSM last Friday. Can they send him back down that fast?

    My guess is that Fontenot may be the odd man out. But who knows.
