As we all know the Cubs let the Cardinals clinch the NL Central at Wrigley Field on Saturday. Last week 1060west's very own John Dooley asked when the Cubs would be mathematically eliminated from the postseason. Well Dools, I PREDICT the Cubs will be eliminated from the NL Wildcard this coming Friday afternoon against the Astros, probably around 5:05 Central Time.
For the record the Cubs elimination number -- before any games were played on Monday -- stands at 6. I wonder if the organ will play taps for those of us who stay for the entire Irish Wake.
