Why I can never give up hope

It seems that many guys on here have already given up on this season, team, and coaches. I know this has been reiterated by some but it is way too early to just throw OUR team over the boat. Seemingly every year there is a team able to make a late run for the playoffs or another team choking. In 2008 the Mets had a 3.5 game lead over the Phillies on Sept. 10. By Oct 1, they fell three games behind the Phillies. On this day in 2007, the Rockies were 7 games behind Arizona for the West. At the end of the season, they were only a half game behind and they won the wild card and got to the WS On this day in 2006, the Twins were 7.5 games behind the Tigers for the Central. On Oct 1, the Twins took the Central with a one game lead over the Tigers. I'm not saying the Cubs will win the Central , or go to the World Series. I'm just saying it's way to early to give up hope now. Don't complain that the Cubs have given up on us while we do the same to them. Go Cubbies!!!
