First, you get a double-header where they give up 32 runs. Then you get that Yanks game where they give up 8 homers and 16 runs.
I'll take a down year here and there. We've had a pretty good decade record wise. Besides, the WS is still fresh in my memory.

I hope they can hold on to that lead! They have a way of letting these things slip away like a greased pig.

They host the Mets this weekend, who are also in first place in the NL East. They also have St. Louis and Milwaukee this month. Fortunately, those are all home games. Their road games are vs. lesser teams like Houston and Colorado. If they can get through this month with more wins than losses, then they should easily make the playoffs. But I'm cautious.

BTW, I don't think the team is cursed. I think Wrigley Field is. If the Cubs blow it this year, then I believe Wrigley needs to be demolsihed in order to break the curse.

You don't have goat on your 40 man roster either, but that never...

The Cubs will have a nice 10 game losing streak (a'la 2004) come September. I still remember it well - they needed to win ONE GAME and couldn't pull it off.

Stupid Brewers, I knew they'd not win the division. That's it, I'm switching teams.

Ach, it was only a matter of time. I doubt the Crew will even finish over .500. They're playing like total crap, have been since the All-Star break.

Yep Bernie. And they're going to lose again today it looks. Cub fans - this should be an interesting series against the Mets for ya. A preview of post season? I'd choose you over the M-E-T-S, Mets, Mets, Mets!
