Things are Getting Tight...

...in the National League Central.

The Chicago Cubs and Milwaukee Brewers both hold a share of the division lead. With the Cubs' loss and Brewers victory on Saturday, the two teams are tied. Months ago when we bought tickets for Monday night's game at Miller Park, I never expected that would be a potential battle for first place. A few weeks ago, I assumed the Cubs would hold a respectable lead.

There is still plenty of games yet to be played, but the trade deadline is just around the corner. Do you think the Cubs can pick up a closer by Thursday night? I hope sp.

The title roped me in. I thought the blog was going to be about the economy. LOL. I don't know much about baseball but I'll say yes, they can do it. Go Cubs!

Glad the title worked. It easily could have been about the economy.

Booo. I don't like sharing the lead. Though I guess it beats not being there at all.

The 4 upcoming games at Miller are going to be huge! I'm excited for you that you get to go. I can only imagine that the atmosphere is going to smell like October.

As far as a closer I don't see anyone out there they will acquire. On the rumor front from MLBtraderumors.com, Rockies GM Dan O'Dowd said the trading of Matt Holiday or Brian Fuentes is "highly Unlikely". That of course could mean they'll be traded as no GM likes to tip his hand at the trade deadline. Plus, the performance by Jeff Samardzija was impressive and he may stick around a while for some solid middle relief. I think Woody will be back soon and continue his excellent season.
