exactly! I just can't figure out how that happened given our run differential and the fact that they traded for jonathan schoop! it's really not fair if you think about it, they should have awarded us the division based on what we presumed our team would be based on our midseason run differential.

The Brewers absolutely earned this, there is nothing unfair about it. This really has little to do with us and everything to do with the Brewers. We ended up about where we should’ve. A ~85 win team got really hot, congrats on being right and happy about that happening.


lol even in defeat you just can't help yourself

Again, congrats on being right about your 5% or so chance of happening call on the VBs. Buy some powerball tickets tonight.

duke and cubswin11 were never wrong about their outlook. the arguments stemmed from their unwillingness to remotely consider the possibility of the brewers finishing ahead of the cubs, then gloating about how wrong the haters were every time the cubs won like 3 in a row. yeah we can say the roster assembled by the brewers didn't deserve to win 95 games, but it doesn't really matter now. the division is over. for this season, we are owned.

Yup ultimately we were wrong and I’ll own it. Still hopefully get one more crack at them starting Thursday.

I will say it always felt like Cubs-Brewers in the DS was gonna happen since about late-August. Just thought we’d be on the other side of it being the home team/division winner.

The Cubs’ transaction list under Epstein and Hoyer reads like a work of fiction, a wish-fulfillment list composed in hindsight.

If we win 4 more games I will still consider them right just like how the Cubs were the 2015 NL Central champs

i actually was saying this same thing to my (lone guy) co-worker that is a braves *fan* it would would be very "cubs-like" for this particular group to totally be trolling the hell out of everyone and lose the division and then sweep them in the NLDS after they celebrated on our field and we repay the favor. javy would just laugh and laugh and laugh and everyone would be talking about the cubs again and the brewers would be infinitely more jealous.

that could happen or the cubs could get killed tomorrow or by the brewers and oh well we won the WS a couple years ago and i'll still be hype af for opening day next year with this group (plus bryce) with a chip on their shoulder.

If the offense gets shutdown again against the Rocks, it will make for an interesting winter.

I'm sure we're going after Harper/Machado no matter what happens in this game (or the rest of the playoffs).
