a world series is just a .437 winning percentage away.

Win 9
lose 10

Get a ring

The troll known as Pudge is correct.

Maximum number of losses while still advancing in ALDS - 2
Maximum number of losses while still advancing in ALCS - 3
Maximum number of losses while still winning World Series - 3

That is 8 total losses. We still have to go at worst 9-8. I sure hope we don't get anywhere close to 8 losses. I would have multiple heat attacks.

Yes, but .500 gets us to Game 7.

Two game 7's and a game 5 against Boston? I will have a full head of gray hair if that is the case.

The Cubune would scream CHOKE from the highest rooftops even if we win the WS under these circumstances. Now, if it were the beloved Flubs who did it, then it would be "Cubs show their talents and battle back history to win what is rightfully theirs!" or some other barf material......

If we go 9-0 we get the same crown.

My guess is somewhere inbetween there....

Boy oh boy.... after the hair-pulling in the second half, what I wouldn't give for 3 sweeps...

My apologies, ( as seen by time of post) I am going to try and save face by blaming being tired. Actually just wasnt thinking, thought 11 loses eliminated us, forgot that meant we lost every series and they let us keep playing to accomplish that.

BUT HEY, I DID GET ONE NUMBER RIGHT. 9 MORE
