Cubs Clinch! 

Just in case you missed it, the Cubs clinched the NL Central on Saturday with a win over the Cardinals. We won't get too carried away, as they won the division last year and were promptly swept by the Diamondbacks. But Cubs fans should enjoy the moment, which is not one we experience with much frequency.

Of course this has the potential to be a historic year, as the Cubs have not won a World Series in 100 years (or appeared in one in more than 60). It's premature to start handicapping the odds of either event happening, however, as there is still baseball to be played.

With other NL playoff spots still TBD, the Trib runs some scenarios by us for the final week of the regular season.

I understand we're in a financial crisis and all, but where's the love for the Cubs? Anyone? Anyone?
