I know this will draw scoffs from many here, but the playoffs are still very do-able for the 2009 edition of the Chicago Cubs.
As we end the month of August today (though with the weather in the midwest this summer, it feels more like early October), the Cubs stand 4 games back in the loss column behind the Colorado Rockies. Thanks to the Giants win last night, the Cubs are still very much alive in the race for the Wild Card.
Yes, a lot of things need to break their way this coming month, but stranger things have happened in baseball folks.
The biggest thing is that the Cubs need to just take care of their own business. "Just win baby".
Let's sweep the Mets today and catch fire in September! GO CUBS!
