We had sweet seats and the weather was phenomenal, considering it is April 18th. The game itself was riveting. Ryan Dempster pitched poorly, and the Cubs were in come-from-behind mode early on... then they got the...

I think it's a reasonable possibility as the Cubs are (on paper) far stronger than the rest of the division... it's also greedy as I'll get out, but hey: I don't care....

As it turns out, most of the country was unable to watch the game because Fox decided that fans elsewhere were more interested in the Cardinals/Yankees or A's/Braves.

And despite the totally awesome second straight come-from-behind win over the Pirates, I definitely was frustrated with some of the managerial decisions in the ninth inning. Top of...
