Cubs win in walk off fashion, magic number down to 2!

The Cubs lowered their magic number to 2 today and could clinch with the Brewers losing 2, Cubs winning 2, or the Cubs winning one and Brewers losing one. Which means they could clinch the division by Friday when they play the Cards and the Brewers playing the Reds. My bet is they clinch by Saturday.

Great time for Cub Fans!!! GOOO CUUUBBBBSSSS!

Z a no-no! My thoughts!

Carlos Zambrano was the first Cubs pitcher since 1972( Milt Pappas) to throw a no hitter. Not only that the Cubs' ace was one BB away from a perfect game and he was the first pitcher since 1900 to pitch a no hitter on neutral site.

I want to say that is was a great game, not just because Z gave up 0 hits, but for these reason-

- Carlos finally proves that he is healthy and is back to himself. He is the NL player of the week!

- He has his strike out and velocity up along with command of his fastball and slider. Things he was missing this season.

- Soto, a rookie, called a great game and deserves as much credit as Z does for the no hitter. Not only was he rookie of the month for the 2nd time this year, last month, he caught a no-no. He is your ROY! Here is a good read-

- The Cubs now have momentum and a commanding lead in the NL Central with the Magic # to win the Division down to 7!

All in all it was a great night for Cub fans. Keep it GOING!!!
