After 4 series, we are at a pathetic 6 and 6 record. This team should be able to win 2 of 3 every series. Do that, and you win 108 games. Obviously it won’t take 108 to get to post season, but you really don’t want to play around too much with that cushion or you end up missing the playoffs. With that being said, I think as a fan, I will do my best to look on the bright side of every series as long as we take 2 out of 3.

Losing the first one to the Bucs this weekend hurt. When you lose with Zambrano on the mound, the chances of winning the series with Dempster and Maddux are slim. I was worried, but the Cubs took care of business. Even THE KING got in on the action recording 2 straight saves. He is perfect in that role since I crowned him. Now, as we look ahead to the Reds, there is no reason we cannot sweep. Wood and Prior, our supposed 1,2 will pitch in the series. This is the perfect opportunity to make up a game that we lost in one of the first 3 series.
