Overview

Sorry for the late column, but I totally blanked this morning as I tried to do some things around the house (The curse of new home ownership I guess).

As for the Cubs, they are currently tied 0-0 in the bottom of the third and are looking for their second straight series victory.

Who's Hot

Extra Innings - Seriously, did anybody see that game last night? Maybe the Cardinals will be thinking about that game the rest of the season.

Who's Not

Aramis Ramirez - is the only regular batting under .200 in the last seven days.

Conclusions

Hopefully, the Cubs will continue their winning ways today and tomorrow in New York.
