    A sweep would be sweet!!! Don’t mind the Cubs losing the second pick if we can keep the Cardinals out of the playoffs.

      The Rox also have a tougher schedule, I think. The Cubs September schedule really was on the cupcake side of soft. (I just mixed metaphors, didn’t I….)

    I would be fine with the third pick as long as the Cubs got a decent pitcher in the first round.

      I would be fine with the fourth pick if it meant keeping the Cardinals out of the playoffs.

    Brewers, Dodgers and Phillies fans all just became Cubs fans. In your face St. Louis!

    I would like to see the Brewers win and take out Cincy. Big sticks on that Brewers team.
