Sorry to my seven readers.

I have to think things will heat up a bit next month.

On the Cubs-Watch front, things look good. Excellent road trip, which they needed in a big way. They’re now about an 85% chance to win the division in real statistical terms (assuming ESPN is using them) but about 55% in actual Cubs-fan world.

We know the stats don’t matter. Hell, it’s been 100 years.
