Man that division blows. The second place team would be either last or second to last in the NL East. If houston at any sort of offense earlier this season they would have already passed the cubs.

I always get a little giggle when I think that the cubs haven't won 90 games as a team since the 98 season and you have so many fans running around right now saying "It's gonna take 90-92 wins to take the wild card and I think we have a good shot"

Make that fourth place. The Brew Crew is 1.5 games behind the Flubs!:D:

Good to see how taking 2 of 3 from the Sox is propelling the Cubs as promised.

Upon further review, it appears the Flubs are closer to last place in their division than they are to first place. Boo hoo hoo.

If only the Reds could pick up the pace as well.

They did this last year as well.And if the pitching holds up,Lance Berkman
stays healthy and Biggio stays off the DL,the Cardinals may watch their
huge lead shrink if they don't keep winning.

...and perhaps Clemens will end up on a playoff team after all. The closer Houston gets to the WC, the less likely he's going anywhere (if it was likely in the first place).

I don't think Clemens is going anywhere.Your post states most
of my reasons why.Also,the 'Stros just drafted Clemens' 18 year
old son,a third baseman.Maybe Roger wants to stick around long
enough to play a major league game with his son.

With the Cubs on the road in Atlanta and Florida and the Astros at home against the Padres and Dodgers, I wouldn't be surprised one bit if Houston passes the Cubs in the standings before the All-Star Break.

And that's no small point. I want Houston back in the race, so Clemens will stay put. I don't like the idea of him being traded to New York, especially since we have six games left with the Yankees.

Keep Clemens out of the American League, unless he wants to come to the Sox.

For the second straight year, once the Cubs got all the pieces together of "THE GREATEST ROTATION OF ALL TIME" they go in the tank. What will Steve Stone say now?
