10,000 WinsLast night, the Chicago Cubs defeated the Colorado Rockies 7-6 in 10 innings to notch the franchise's 10,000th win. Over the past few days, I've been approached by fellow Cubs fans at work, from former places of employment, and other random spots. I've been asked the same question over and over again.
"Can you believe the Cubs?"
In fact, both the Cubs and White Sox are off to great starts. The Cubs have a 2-game lead over the Milwaukee Brewers. Even though the White Sox dropped their last two games, they have a one-and-a-half game lead over the Minnesota Twins.
A group of guys were talking about the Cubs at work the other day. The biggest surprise with the Cubs is that they are playing the game the right way. They take walks and don't simply try to hit home runs all day. Aramis Ramirez even appears to hustle these days.
October is a long way away, but so far, so good.
