The Cubs are hoping that the Rockies have forgotten about the trip that we made to Chicago in June wherein they swept us away as one leg of the most disappointing road trip of the season to date. Conversely, that series was near the beginning of a Cubs surge that would see them rise from the dregs of the league into its upper-crust. The heat of late summer, however, brings a different story, with the Rockies cresting and the Cubs sliding back a little.
So, in summation, we're looking for two things, then:
- A continuation of trends from the past two weeks or so.
- Sweet revenge in a Rockies sweep.
