As far as the rest of MLB, well in the AL. the Yanks are running away from the pack in the East, the Rangers and Angels are battling it out in the West and the Tigers are finally playing up to expectations in the Central. There are 8 teams within 3 games for the 2 wild card spots with about a week left before the trade deadline. I'm interested to see what the next week brings.
In the NL, the Division races are all very tight, with Cinci, SF, and Washington leading, all by 2 games or less. There are only 4 teams within 4 games of the wildcard in the NL. The Mets and Dbacks are 5 & 6 out, but both have been struggling.
There is still a lot of baseball left and i just want to see the Cubs continue to develop and build for the future. I think we can compete better next year, and contend in 2013. Gotta have hope.
