I asked the Cubs a favor on Monday. Friday they delivered with a 3-1 win against New York.
This series, in particular, will be remembered for years. And it could be one of the few good memories for Cubs fans to remember this season by.
With such a dreadful first half, the Cubs owe us a good showing vs. the Yanks. Friday was the perfect start, literally from Doug Davis.
Cubs faithful showed up with the largest home attendance this year. The Cubs fed off the energy, and the next two games will be sold out as well.
Taking two of three would go a long ways towards reshaping the sour feeling about the Cubs. Quade will get some breathing room, and maybe, just maybe, the Cubs can carry the momentum of a series win against Milwaukee and New York for one last run before the All Star break.
