Cubs are 32 games over 500 and 5 games up in the NL Central and have the Best record in baseball. They will almost certainly be in first place on Labor Day. Again being a life long Cubs fan this is good news and bad news. The possibility is that the crash could be even bigger than ever before. I am pretty amazed that Milwaukee has hung in as well as then have. I wish the Cubs would put some distance between themselves and the Brewers.
Meanwhile the cubs play has been amazing. The Rookie of the Year (Soto) and several candidates for the Cy Young award and Maybe an MVP if the votes don't get split among the viable candidates.
The way they have won games is absolutely amazing. Winning late and scoring runs from every position in the lineup. It has been a great year to be a Cubs fan and almost makes the years of misery worth it. But anything less than a world series win will be a let down at this point. Once every 100 years even the Cubs have to win the world series.
