    On a somber note, the Cubs will clinch in St. Louis.

    Just wondering, have the Cardinals ever clinched at Wrigley?

    So the Cubs can clinch the division in St. Louis and knock us out of wild card contention at the same time? Wow, what a crappy week this will be.

    On the other hand, if we sweep them and somehow win the wild card how sweet will it be.

    Boy, that is a weak line-up. It’s amazing we are as close as we are.

    I don’t get what you are seeing new. All eight position players in tonight’s lineup lead the team in starts at their respective positions this year. They are playing the vets in the big game.

    Its a weak lineup because half of them are having bad years. Once they rebound somewhat next year, along with Stanton in the middle of the lineup, we should be in high cotton.

    Weaver is getting pounded. But Piscotty took a bad route on Russell’s base clearing double.

    Waiting for the bottom to drop on Weaver for about 2 starts.

    I think Rats is also hinting at that we need a MOTO bat in the lineup and changes need to be made.

    After Russell spilled a guy’s nachos on the field attempting to catch Gyorko’s foul ball he then homers. 5-1

    Well, we already know we have poor defense, poor situational hitting, poor base running, and an abysmal bullpen. Then give up 4 runs in the 1st, and prospects for winning this one are extremely low. Cubs will be celebrating on our turf. Next year seems like a loooong way off.

    Good for Russell. New nachos and a picture for the fan.

    Why no intentional walk with 2 outs and the pitcher up next? Baez vs Lester, I’ll take Lester. That’s the manager’s call, and he made the wrong one there.

    Could be argued Weaver had no business being in the game at that point.

    Doesn’t Lester have a couple hits against us?

    I’m glad Molina had a day and a half worth of rest for this pivotal game.

    Matheny has a bad problem of leaving starters in games too long. VEB did a analysis of this just a week ago. Looks like Cubs will be breaking out the champagne tonight.

    They can’t clinch tonight. They just eliminate us.

    On a good note, Colorado trails Miami 4-0 in the 5th.

    But time is running out……….
