Not bad at all. Of course a lot depends on which version of Ramirez turns up... :-)

I'm just happy the front office made atrade that keeps us in contention...In the past its seems like it has always been a trade that took us out....This trade should spark the team at the least...Ramirez is better than anything the Cubbies have run out at the third sack all year...The Harris/Ramon/Bellhorn/Hernandez combo was just horrid all year...Lofton brings more speed and is better defensively than Goodwin...I would rather have Corey, but since that's not possible....This is one of the best trades the Cubbies have made in a long time....Now go get Ponson.... :-D

Ramirez might be better offensively, but he already has two errors in three games as a cubbie... I hope that doesn't hurt the team too much in the long run!
