The next six days will show Cubs fans if this team can pick themselves off the floor and make a run at the WC. Six games against two of the WC contenders, Philly and NY. Since Pedro pitches tomorrow, the Cubs will get a break and not have to face one of the best pitchers in MLB. It's put up or shut up time for this team, coaching staff, & management. No more excuses, Big Z needs to deliver a good performance to start the trip right and the O needs to take advantage of playing in Citizens Bank Safety Deposit Box. Anything less than a sweep of Philly and 2 of 3 in Shea means both these teams are still ahead of the Cubs and hopes of a WC berth go from slim to non-existent.
