And should wrap it up. The Cubs should leave Florida with at least 76 wins, with Dempster throwing Sunday.
The next 13 of 16 are at home with 12 of 16 against Cincy, Washington, Pitt. and Houston. A nice 12-4 run would give them 88 wins with 22 to play. They actually have a chance to have more wins at the end of August than they did all of last year.
This next homestand is huge. Alot has been written about their September schedule being tough.They have a chance to make it a moot point with a strong homestand to finish off August.
If they rock and roll the next three weeks they could have 96 wins before they even leave for the last road trip to NY and Milwaukee.
