The Cubs Don't Suck Lately, and Here's the Proof


The morning of May 17, the Cubs woke up in Milwaukee as the authors of a 13-27 record, which projects out to a 109-loss season, the thought of which would have surprised almost no one at the time.

This morning, June 19, the Cubs woke up in Chicago with a 30-40 record, which projects out to a 93-loss season, the thought of which again would surprise only those who expect the Cubs to be much worse.

In the intervening 30 games, however, the Cubs have fashioned a record of 17-13. That works out to a .567 winning percentage, which would be good enough to put them in first place in no fewer than three divisions.

Thirty games is not a whole season, but it's not nothing, either. And if the Cubs could somehow keep up that pace for the rest of the season, they would end up with an 82-80 record, and I think we can all agree we'd be very happy with that, right?

All of which is the long way around to saying: I have games left in my season ticket package to sell, starting with this coming Wednesday against Billy Hamilton and the Reds. Please, won't someone buy some games off me? Come on, the Cubs don't suck lately. ;)
