    Cubs are top of MLB

    Since everyone else is having a love fest of their teams today I just wanted to point out that the Cubs own the best record in MLB coming into today.

    ESPN - MLB Standings, Pro Baseball Standings, Major League Baseball Standings and Team Records

    GO CUBS GO!


    Go Cubs Go!

    it hasnt been a pretty game at all but hopefully the cubs can take advantage of the wind and score some runs.

    Wow... not a good line for Lily today.
    3 IP 8 Hits 7 ER's.

    Zambrano pinch hit for Lilly in the 4th.

    Re: Cubs are top of MLB

    The Cubs deserve respect at this point, as they've been playing very good baseball. There's not really an easy out in the lineup -- especially if Zambrano or Marquis are pitching.

    I do think their home/road splits are a concern, though. 23-8 at home while 10-13 on the road. As they play more road games to even out the disparity, they're going to have to play better than .430 baseball away from the friendly confines.

    Same with Boston. They're a very impressive 21-5 at Fenway, and an equally unimpressive 11-19 on the road.

    Re: Cubs are top of MLB

    I'm looking at the box... Looks like an Edmunds error cost the Cubs 3 runs in the 3rd.
