    Will the Cubs finish over .500?

    Since the Cubs are all but mathematically eliminated from post season play I am just hoping that they can finish with a winning record.

    I think the Cubs will finish the season 1-2 BELOW .500 baseball. That with the super soft remaining schedule.

    At least we had the week or two when Aramis, Lee, and Soriano all hit the ball.

    Otherwise this team really bad.

    I don't even know where to start after tonight. 15 runs at Wrigley to the Nationals? Really?


    42-54 Record in CF Mafia. The most games played and wins by any player in Cyclone Fanatic History. Yes, I'm a nerd.

    Who cares if they finish with a winning record? At this point, it should be World Series or bust every year.

    Not sure, but I would bet they win more in the remainder of this regular season than they did in the last 2 post seasons combined. Or, for that matter, more games than in all their post seasons in the last 100 years combined. I am really that confident in this year's finish!!!!

    Re: Will the Cubs finish over .500?

    Wonder what the odds on the cubs finishing above .500 now are. I already lost all my previous credits on them... may as well lose some more!

    How does your supposed Ace lose to Garret Mock? A guy who is only in the big leagues to give the young starters a rest...

    Re: Will the Cubs finish over .500?

    in all honesty the nats have been hot as oflate..



    ok done with excuses the cubs are horrible.. its really sad.. wouldnt be suprised if we didnt win another game..


    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."

    A 39 game losing streak would still actually surprise me at this point.

    Re: Will the Cubs finish over .500?

    I stuck a fork in this team about 2 weeks ago. Anyone holding out hope they'll get hot and make the playoffs still I want a hit of what you are smoking. Right now they'd have to play .750 baseball the rest of the season to make the playoffs and that is just not going to happen with this team.

    Re: Will the Cubs finish over .500?

    So what do you guys think they do in the offseason? I doubt they will find anyone that would want to pick up Bradley or Soriano's contracts...where do they need the most help?
