The Cubs remained idle today but Milwonky got humiliated by Philadelphia. That increases our lead to 6 games, with 16 games remaining in the regular season. That brings the Magic Number for winning the division down to 10!
Cubs Emotion-o-Meter Word(s) of the Day: "Kinda Awesome". Between our 16 remaining games, and Milwonky's 14- we need a total of only 10 of them to go our way (either Cubs win or Milwonky loss). That's a third. The Cubs' winning percentage is .603, and Milwonky's losing percentage is .439, our odds of winning the division are Kinda Awesome

Also, I was able to have one of my German operatives do me a favor. His cousin is a big Brewers fan and watches all of their games on MLB.com. The footage of him watching today's loss against the Phillies sheds a lot of light on the current mood of Brewers fans. They aren't nearly as carefree as our monkey is, that's for sure. See for yourself below.
