Well fellow Cub fans it was fun while it lasted...but the glass slipper is off...expect several dropped series in a row and back to who i thought they be as Dennis Green said...a .500 at best ball club...no closer..no relief..starters will began to falter..it will be a slide of epic porportion..i did enjoy the ride but ITS OVER. These last two in Cincy painful..the next 3 in Washington will be ugly

Unfortunately, I can see a regression to the mean coming too. Cubs are not as bad as they started the year and probably not the best team in the NL as constructed.

I understand what Harry is saying about "regressing toward the mean" (toward the mean being the key words). It's not that they're plummeting for the cellar, it's that not many teams could sustain the pace with which the Cubs were hitting (and winning) at. For example, there's not much likelihood Caratini would be able to continue with an SLG over 1.000 (after returning from injury), so when his SLG drops to .675, he's not "regressing," but rather he's regressing toward the mean (average).

I agree, they're not a last place team, but they're probably not going to be a team that wins at a .650 clip either. The bats are slumping again to some degree, and the bullpen is faltering a little. Long stretch ahead, let's hope they get the things tweaked that need tweaking.

They lost one series in a month for god's sakes. Cubs fans are insane. How the heck can you see regression over two games? I honestly don't know how fans get out of bed every morning worrying about the useless crap you worry about.

Just enjoy the ride and quit with the glass half empty garbage.

Well well, not just one series is it?? If not for the fact the other central division teams also are slumping...heck only 5 games between first and worse....Sad to say enjoying the ride needs alot to be desired..fixes could and still could be had...but nothing will be done...the say the bullpen will get help.LOL I'm a diehard Cub fan but dying a lot and harder this year but think only 106 years left until we are on top again.Enjoy first place now and last place later

I agree that if it wasn't for the rest of the NLC (save for the Reds) bombing just as miserably as the Cubs have lately, they'd be in third place and about 3.5 games back right now. Miley has tortured the Cubs, but they've never seen him in Houston. bats need to be sharp (translation Javy need not chase every slider within 10 feet of the dugout), and Hendricks needs a 7+ inning start.
