Yeah, what have they won now, 4 out of 5? Are they playing .400 ball now? Tomorrow the rooftop joints will be flooded with calls about October bookings.

and here's some typical flubbie koolaid from the flubbie message boards on AOL:

>While it's difficult to be happy about the Cubs' start this year, I think
>there's plenty to be excited about. Most importantly, Corey Patterson looks
>like he may make Cub fans' dreams come true. His play so far is enough to
>overshadow just about all the failures of prospects in the recent past. He
>looks more and more like he may develop into the superstar we've all been
>hoping for. That alone has made the 2002 season
>exciting. Plus, there should be more good news soon, as Mueller returns,
>Farnsworth gets healthy, and Prior gets here. Also, most likely, Alou and
>McGriff will hit well consistently, making the everyday lineup pretty strong.
>Personally, I see no reason why the Cubs can't get back into the race quickly
>(let's say by middle June), and turn around all the early-season
>disappointments.

Where have I heard that before? It sounds so familar.

He does make one good point though...Patterson has made me forget Tuffy Rhodes.

Sox winning streaks are always tempered with pessimism. (84 years without a championship will do this) Cubs winning streaks always seem to equal future October glory. As we all found out last year how difficult it is to dig yourself out when you fall 8-10 games below .500. You win 4 in a row but the minute you lose a series 2 out of 3 or 3 of 4, you're right back in the hole you dug. Of course, try telling this to a starry eyed Cub fan.
