In any normal year for the Cubs, stats are something I don't pay attention to.
Usually too painful.
Mostly, they do well in homers, but that's about it.
This year is different.
They're right up there in almost every kind of stat you can come up with, even compared to teams in both leagues.
When they won last night in Pittsburgh 12 to 3, I looked up the run difference again, because that's the one I really can't believe.
The Cubs have scored (if my math is right) 184 more runs than the opposition.
One hundred and eighty four!
That's just mean.
That's a number Bill Belichick would envy.
The White Sox have 111 more, the Cardinals 65, the Red Sox 111, the Brewers 62, the Angels 52, and Tampa Bay 82 (it's early, and I'm doing math... if I'm wrong sue me).
And last night Tough Ted Lilly of the Valley of Death got the win in the laugher over the Pirates.
And oh yeah, the Cubs have more wins than anybody in baseball.
Of all the posts I've ever done, this has got to be the weirdest.
