The month of June provided us with plenty of extra Cubs baseball with 21 combined extra innings. If you take out the one rain out that has yet to be made up, that's still 12 extra innings! But maybe all those extra innings wore out the Cubs' bats because of the four times the Cubs were shutout which ultimately resulted in an 11-14 month of June which brings the Cubs to 36-38 for a 4th place spot trailing by 4.5 games... only 4.5 games, the Cubs are still in this thing! The Cubs have their work cut out for them as they go up agianst 1st place Milwaukee and 2nd place St.Louis both in 4-game sets at home.
This month I'm trying something new. Since I rank my personal favorite games by how much I get worn out by excitement after the game is done, I put the 11 wins in an A, B, C categorial order. Category A involves the four walk-off wins. Category B involves the two extra-inning wins on the road and two close games the Cubs won on the road. Category C involves three wins that were sort of ho-hum wins, not that any Cubs win should be labeled as a ho-hum win especially when they're as scarce as they've been lately. Plus, I wanted to not only get every win on the poll, but make it easier to decide by breaking it down into sort of a "seeded" positioning.
Can't wait to see how this poll plays out. Leave comments and good discussions as you usually do.
