I concede good baseball when I see it. The Cubs. Have. Good. Baseball.

And this is straight from a die-hard Cardinals fan.

You're saying that the Brewers are going to catch the Cubs in the NL Central race. Just want to clarify.

*Off to check Cubs schedule*

Very possible. You know your going to choke, it's in your heritage.

No, we'll do this publicly.

A year of TotalFark says the Cubs win the NL Central. And if I win, I can delay your payment to me until next year.

That's a big stat though. Even though the Marlins are the only really quality team it's a big improvement.

Would that be a good idea for either of us? I'm not going to accept or decline until I do some googling.

So many Wrigleys.. I thought Florida was Wrigley South, which, not for nothing but I take full responsibility for the Sunday win against the Marlins.

the original "Wrigley South" was definitely Fulton County Stadium, but nowadays I think you gotta say it's the Marlins' park.

Wrigley North is Miller and Wrigley West is the D-Backs' park.

What would Wrigley East be? PIT or CIN?

I will say since this went green, the Marlins fans "showed" up during the last Florida series. I mean they didn't outnumber us or even come close to filling the stadium but they at least came out. It was borderline respectable.

I'm trying to be nice. We had some really great Marlins fans in our section.

Oh, and I'd say Cincy. Which by the way they are pretty cool about the whole Cubs Nation thing going on in their park. You gotta give them credit for not being prissy about it.

OK, when the Cubs collapse I'll allow you to sponsor my TF for a year, even though I hate it cause I spend too much time here when I'm not a liter.

If for some reason they don't I'll gift you TF you for a year. Asking me to wait till years end is risky IMHO. If they don't collapse the end of time is probably near.

Wait, you're betting the Cubs don't make the playoffs?
 
2008-08-27 12:17:48 AM  
I'm sorry, I have the ability to scroll. I see the bet is win the NL Central. Carry on.

Don't you also have a year of TF if the Cubs make it to the WS? I like how you're covering your bets here.

And yes I know my odds, but the Brew Crew is peaking. And I guess I don't have to tell you about the Cubs tendencies do I?

That's like playing roulette and betting on black because you just saw a bunch of reds on the board. History doesn't factor into the odds.

I know but CC, Sheets, Braun, Prince, Hart, JJ etc. etc. do.

The game last night was fun to watch. ESPECIALLY Geo Soto driving in 7. That guy is going to be a HUGE part of the Cubs' future.

Brewer fans need to find a way to smuggle a black cat into a Cubs game. That will freak 'em out.

Bucs actually showed up last night with clutch hits like they did before the trades. Zambrano got lit up. Unfortunately, the pitching staff also pitched like they did before the trades.

One thing for certain - Soriano should never start another game in left in PNC Park.
 
2008-08-27 09:31:06 AM  
The Cubs should never have been in the NL East in the first place. It cost them two division titles.

Don't get me wrong, I still hate them. But, damn, they are playing some good baseball.

You're one to talk, because the Brewers have such a glorious heritage of winning World Series left and right and regularly making the playoffs...

Hey, maybe the Brewers will choke and not make the playoffs. After all, they only have 2 playoff appearances in team history.
