I'm a huge Cubs fan and i think our bullpen needs to focus and pull their heads out of there *****. But any ways the brewers wont be atop very long, Cubs and Cards will pick it up and will end up bein atop and Cubs will win the division(Hopefully.......Knock on wood)
I am not a lifelong cub fan (I got stuck with the M's) but I just accepted a job in the north side of Chicago and am starting to pay more attention to the Cubs. Anyway, as discussed in an earlier post, the Cubs have a lot of expendable parts that could lead to some interesting trades. This team will not be the same team that they finish the year with, and the interesting thing to me is going to be who becomes avaliable in the trade market and if the Cubs' brass are savy enough to pull off the trades.
--ME TOO!!! This is why I will never root for the Cardinals - unless a win by them would help the Brewer cause- (sorry Cardinal fans). Anyway, I know it is still VERY EARLY, and you cannot look too strongly at April stats, but I feel that the Brewers' pitching is fairly strong at this point (no injuries PLEAAAASE), their offense is better than average, and their defense will be much better than last year especially as Hall keeps improving in center.
Also, I would gladly accept a "slim-margin" 1st place finish in a WEAK division than going back to the 1992 scenario when the Brewers arguably had the 2nd best team in the A.L., but did NOT make the playoffs. (GRRRRR!!)
Utah Utes, Illinois Illini. The University of Pennsylvania thought about following this pattern by calling themselves the Pennsylvania Pencils. However, they were afraid their students would start chanting "We're No. 2"
