Yep, young Rich Hill, Sean Marshall and Scotty Eyre looked really sharp in the 4-nothin' win against a toothless Reds team yesterday.
Yep, young Mr. Murton and Mr. Cedeno hit homers off serious tough guy Aaron Harang.
Yep, it would be nice to get the possible 86th win today.
But...just say this out loud: The 2007 National League Central Division Champion Chicago Cubs.
I said it enough yesterday to annoy pretty much anyone around me.
It sounds so cool.
Try different ways, good for hours of amusement:
"Why, did you know the Cubs are the NL Central Division Champs of 2007?"
"Wonder who won the NL Central?"
"GUESS WHAT? The Cubs won the NL Central! They're going to the playoffs!"
We won't know who the Cubs will play until the NL East is decided, and it's pretty wacky out there.
But anyway, did you know the Cubs won the NL Central?
Yeah, it's true.
They're going to the playoffs.
