Thank you Cubs!
I can't believe I'm saying that, but it's not very often that the playoff lives of the Brewers are very much dependent on how the Cubs play. Not since 1992 have I been as wrapped up in a non-Brewer non-playoff game in September. With the slim 1 game of separation between the Mets and Crew in the wild card, CC on the mound for the Crew, Zambrano for the Cubs, and a cool crisp September night, playoff electricity was definitely in the air.....and I was 400+miles away from all the action. With the Brewers taking care of their bus. I couldn't help but stay up past my bed time (damn I'm gettin old) to see what was going to happen with the game in New York. And the game did not disappoint! Not only did the Cubs win in extras, but to get out of that jam in the bottom of the ninth with a man on 3rd and no out was something special in itself. Damn, I wish I was in "the good land" right now! Today is going to be big for us with the first appearance by Gallardo in 5 months. It would be HUGE if we could go into the weekend with a 1 game advantage. I would feel much better if we had a game of breathing room when we face the Cubs, considering the big question mark of a starting staff that we are throwing together at this point. GO CREW!
