By the Way...

The Cubs clinched their second consecutive Central Division title yesterday. As if you weren't already aware of that. There have been unconfirmed reports of a drunken and despondent Kosuke Fukudome wandering the streets of Chicago in the wee hours of the morning, donning a kimono flailing about with an imaginary baseball bat. While we don't know if this is true, we have verified that Ted Lilly left his wedding ring in the clubhouse and proceeded to dance the night away at John Barleycorn.

Now we rest our starters and wait. So, who do the readers prefer that the Cubs end up playing in the first round, the Dodgers, the Mets, or the Phillies? Each seems a little unsettling in their own right. We'll get a preview of the Mets of course starting on Monday.
