This pen and ink illustration is from late summer 2003.
Some time really soon, the Cubs will have a big series with the Cardinals (like this) and it'll be for something far more important than just a spoiler game.
A year from now?
Anyway, the Cubs drop the last two vs the Cards and now it's back to Wrigley to play the other first place team in the Central, Milwaukee.
Love to wreck their fun a little...
