Today marks the start of a three-day question of fan morality. Cubs win … good? Cubs lose … good? What does your head tell you? Your heart?

For me, I think I’d prefer that the Cubs drop all three games, but I’m not sure I can actively root for it. It’s just hard, especially with so few games left before I won’t be able to cheer for my Cubs for a long, long time.

With tonight’s lineup, though, the Cubs may have made their choice.

Ditto Rockies. And I think they look “better” at it.
