Lose tonight, and the foregone conclusion becomes plain old reality.
If the Rockies win tonight, 100 Cubbie runs won’t matter.
But if the Cubs win . . . and the *gulp* Brewers win, Chicago’s playoff chances live on in blatant desperation.
A lot of other people have a lot of opinions about a lot of other Cub-related issues. Right now, I’m just contemplating the moment and leaving rational thought for another day.
