The Two Ifs

With the Cubs facing the Diamondbacks starting around the time third shifters take their lunch, now would seem to be the last chance to chime in with predictions on the outcome of the series.

It's actually pretty simple. If the Diamondbacks are to win, they cannot lose any start Brandon Webb makes. If the Cubs are to win, they cannot lose any start Brandon Webb DOESN'T make.

Extrapolating from there, the Diamondbacks must win tonight and the Cubs must win tomorrow night.

Now, can the Cubs win tonight? Sure. And, as it was all year, it's up to the Big Four. Alfonso Soriano, Derrek Lee, Aramis Ramirez and Carlos Zambrano were the Four Tops all last month. They need to continue that tonight.

Prediction: Cubs in 4.

Just Cliff Clavining

The Eight Year Old saw the video from 1989 as it was transferred from tape to digital video. He then saw Frank Chance’s picture flash across the screen. “Is that the guy from that Merkle thing?” he asked.

How the hell did he know that?
