Time is Running Out…

….for the Mets, Phillies, Brewers, Astros, and Diamondbacks that is. These are the only teams that have a realistic shot at the post season in the National League.

The Cubs are basically locked, and the Dodgers are 98.5% in…but we all know there is a little baseball to be played.

Basically it is do or die time for the Brewers, Phillies, and Mets. Two spots…three teams. I had the idea for this article all day…but ESPN beat me to it…so fuck it – here is their version instead…I am here to pull for the Cubs and eliminate whoever is in our way. At this point, it is World Series of Poker time in baseball. Get rid of all of the competition and be the last one standing.

On the hill tonight the Brewers have a good shot to beat the Cubs becuse they are sending Ben Sheets out to face Jason “One Big Inning” Marquis. The only problem now for the Brew Crew is that historically, when Marquis has no pressure to win, which is in essence what the entire Cubs staff has for the rest of the season, he has pitched really well.

Add to the equation the Brewersare in disarray and the only guy not affected seems to be Prince Fielder.

At any rate…we all get to share the Cubs tonight on ESPN which means everyone everywhere will be watching…we will be chatting down below….rub two quarters together for a good showing tonight on national tee vee…but keep it in context….we are up 9 in the division and magic number is 4…..end of day worst case scenario is 8 and 4….magic number cant go up….like we said…time is running out.

  3. Larry says:

    HERE — love the tophat!!!

  4. mikeychx says:

    hope i get to update it tonight

  5. Larry says:

    Fielder isn’t helping the cause and neither is Marquis…so far. Long way to go & I’d like to see a duece myself as well!! I am a little confused…at the end of your article was is the 8 and six referencing? Been a long day – could have a case of the DA’s. lol

  6. Larry says:

    Get this 2 bit chicken wing out of there and let’s go hit

  7. mikeychx says:

    worst case sceanrio….cubs would be 8 up in the division and magic number back to six….still fine spot to be in

  8. mikeychx says:

    if they were to lose that is

  9. Larry says:

    “As the baseball season winds down, there’s a lot of talk about the “magic number” for a team to clinch first place. It’s used to quickly determine how close a team is to its goal. A team must be in first place in the particular standings to truly have a magic number.”

    “The magic number can never go up. It only subtracts. A team can’t have a magic number of 9 on one day and 10 the next.”

    Number stays at 4

  10. mikeychx says:

    for sure….thats cool…so update or the same then…thanks for the lesson

  11. Larry says:

    I thought I was right but double checked to make sure I was not giving you bogus information. Let’s get some runs!!

  12. mikeychx says:

    theres one…rammie

  13. Larry says:

    We’re coming back tonight, I tel; you. No worries. Sheets may be good for 4-5 innings but then he seems to tire .

  14. Larry says:

    What happened? I did not even notice. Is there BP action?

  15. Larry says:

    Yeah – Sheets is done. Time to feast Cubbies

  16. mikeychx says:

    wonder if hes done for the yerar?

  17. Larry says:

    He goes 2 innings off a previous injury similar in nature – I think so. Oh, to pull that a little more!!

  18. mikeychx says:

    i miss the old days of 300 comments here

  19. Larry says:

    Why won’t anyone come over? Would it be better if I left?

  20. mikeychx says:

    fuck no…stay

    it was cuban, boze, wisodm cube, 1 cub , man in the box…..and you and me….everyone but you an me have disappeared…cuban should be here some time though

  21. Larry says:

    How come no one will come over? Is ESPN their comfort zone?

  22. Larry says:

    Let’s pick up 1 more here, Cubs. RBI time DeRo

  23. mikeychx says:

    yeah…espn makes it easy…+ i think they like the trolls…and i cant advertise in the comments because i get banned…when i stopped advertising i lost the peeps

  24. Larry says:

    I hate it when we have runners at the corners and can’t get 1 home. It just seems like the Cubs have been so good with 2 outs the majority of the season.

  25. Larry says:

    Cubs featured in “There’s Only One October” ad….very cool.

  26. mikeychx says:

    yeah…still 15 outs left to tk this game over though

  27. Larry says:

    DeRo has been doing a masterful job in RF

  28. mikeychx says:

    so does yost manage again?

  29. Larry says:

    He will latch on somewhere. Wouldn’t want to venture a guess just yet, but Baltimore, Pittsburgh, San Diego and Seattle couldn’t do any worse.

  30. Larry says:

    Or maybe Bobby Cox will find a place for him.

  31. mikeychx says:

    larry,

    i fixed the post with the info you provided

  32. Larry says:

    What did you fix ? Magic number info? Good job, Mikey!! Maybe Sorryano wants to set it up on a golf tee and try it that way!!

  33. mikeychx says:

    yeah that was awful

  34. Larry says:

    WE ARE flat!!!!

  35. mikeychx says:

    magic number is still 4 though

  36. Larry says:

    yes it is. aram is the only one with a hit I think

  37. Larry says:

    check that – Edmonds has 1 too. A whopping 3 hits & people are bitching about

    marquis’ performance.

  38. mikeychx says:

    yeah…marquis one big inning was the first…weird huh?

  39. Larry says:

    It wasn’t even a big inning. Certainly 3 runs would be considered a quality start, though you’d prefer to not put your team in a hole the 2st inning. I am signing off for tonight. Sleep depravation is catching up to me!! See you tomorrow!! And as always, GO, CUBS. Maybe you can still pull them through.
