Bold Statement About the CubsI glanced at the Chicago Tribune's Sports section this morning and was pleased to see the Cubs and White Sox in first place in their respective divisions at the end of April. Yes, it's still early in the season so anything can happen. The Brewers certainly did a number on the Cubs last night. The final score was close, but Milwaukee pounded out a ton of hits.
Anyway, while the Cubs were having a great home stand about a week ago, a guy at work made a bold statement. When the Cubs finally claimed first place from the St. Louis Cardinals, he proclaimed that the Cubs would never look up at the Cardinals in the standings again during the 2008 season. Another coworker, who incidentally is a Cardinals fan, said that was a bold statement. At that point, the Cubs only had a half game lead.
I just know we'll be greeted this morning to comments like, "Does a look across the top of the division count?" Should be an interesting morning to say the least.
