Cubs on brink
With the ticker tape from the downtown Cubs rally still flapping around in the wind, the euphoria which met their first appearance in post-season since 2003 is quickly fading. A young Arizona Diamondback team put away a costly assembled Cubs outfit on both Wednesday and Thursday night and tomorrow at Wrigley Field could see the curtain drawn on a season just 6 days longer than usual.
The D-Backs comfortably beat the Cubs 8-2
last night after winning game one 3-1 the night before. One can blame the heat of the desert but tomorrow's temperature here is expected to be 88 degrees when he players enter the hallowed turf for game three of the divisional series. There is an air of despondency amongst the fans, lets hope coach Lou Piniella can lift the north of the city to keep the winter from coming quicker than expected.
