Sometimes it’s better that the Cubs aren’t in contention.
Were they in a race right now, my night would be completely ruined. Up 5-0 with Jeff Samardzija cruising in the middle innings, this game looked like a lock to the Cubs. Then the Phillies strung together a bunch of hits, the bullpen gave up the lead, and the bats stopped doing anything. Game over. Cubs lose. Unbelievable.
Or, well, totally believable this year.
