Just look at the fantastic division races across the National League!
Which means…Chicago’s best bet remains the division race, where neither the Cardinals nor Reds have separated themselves.
With 20-plus games remaining before the All Star break, the Cubs are surprisingly within striking distance. Even a little four-game winning streak could close the gap enough for the Cubs to make a second half run.
But we need the real Cubs to stand up…take the stage and perform the way we know they’re capable of. Scoring more than two runs per game would be an excellent start.
But if all remains the same in Cubs Land, the curtain on the 2010 season will close faster than it appears on paper.
