Manny Ramirez


ST. LOUIS - Manny Ramirez isn't listed as an official coach on the Cubs' roster, but he's still having a huge impact on the team's postseason run.


DETROIT – Maybe Joe Maddon felt like practicing for that “Curb Your Enthusiasm” appearance Jeff Garlin promised if Larry David ever gets the gang back together again on HBO.


WASHINGTON – Jorge Soler stood at his locker with a walking boot covering his left foot on Saturday morning inside the visiting clubhouse at Nationals Park.


SAN DIEGO – Javier Baez looms as an X-factor, either as a trade chip if the Cubs decide they need another frontline pitcher, or a game-changing force if it all finally clicks at Triple-A Iowa.
