….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.
