2008-07-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)Thanks for the chat CK, always enjoy the work. Nate helped talk me down, but I need just a bit more reassurance, this Cubs thing is just a late June Swoon, right, and they'll be back winning serious games starting this weekend? Right? Right? Please??? (We Cubs fans are a somewhat sad lot.)
(strupp from Madison)
I don't know, the points made by Marc recently about how Kosuke's a Wrigley warrior, like Keith Moreland of old to my way of thinking, that gets you to thinking... I guess I think there's a very real danger of losing the division to the Brewers, but if I had to pick the wild card, it's going to be the team that finishes second in the Central. (Christina Kahrl)
2008-06-27 14:00:00 (link to chat)SAT Question Time: The 2008 Chicago Cubs will end up looking the most like A) the 1907 Cubs B) the 1929 Cubs or C) the 1984 Cubs?
(Ali Nagib from Chicago)
Hrm, interesting... in '29, Hack Wilson frightened people in the field; in '84, Keith Moreland frighened people in the field; and in '08, Soriano frightens people in the field. I'm inclined to go with '84. Just keep Derrek Lee's glove away from the Gatorade. (Christina Kahrl)
