      Only 4.5 games ahead of the Brewers in the NL Central and on a two game skid, it's september, SEPTEMBER!!!  Not to mention, that the Brewers aren't so bad at the moment either. lf the Cubs win today and the Brewers lose the Cubs will be 5.5 games ahead of the Brewers(Not uh).

      Everyone was making a big deal, or I guess a smaller deal, about how the Cubs are for sure ending the season above 500. whupdee- freakin-doo, that doesn't matter if we miss the playoffs.

      I'm not saying we won't make the playoffs hell I even think the Brewers will with the Wild Card which is good considering how good the Cubs play against the Brewers this year. Also Chicago is starting a series versus the Astros and Milwaukee is starting a series versus the Mets, who are also not half bad at the moment. The Cubs players are hitting pretty good in the clutch too.

Whats with the Cubs?

The Cubs won't miss the playoffs.  Don't worry.  An NLCS is practically in the bag for them, and they are definately favored for a trip to the WS. 

This weekend, they split with the Phillies.  They ran into a team that is needing to win very badly because of a certain NY team has taken the lead in the division. 

The Phillies are also a very good team.  They do not have a single losing record to any team in the NL except for the NY Mets.  I think the Cubs are better then the Phillies, but only slightly.  A hot Phillies hitting team is almost unbeatable with they way they've been pitching.  In all seriousness, the Cubs got some luck on their side that they defeated the Phillies bullpen, which most teams have realized is the almost impossible task of the season when facing them.
