Does it even matter?

The Cubs enter Miller Park this weekend for a three game series. The two teams sit one game apart the Cubs are 16-12 and the Brewers are 16-13. Based on play thus far this season the Brewers have a 27% chance of making the playoffs while the Cubs have a 24% chance according to BP Playoff Odds. Now, if you get down into the numbers if the Brewers were to sweep the Cubs this weekend they'd be at 19-13 and probably above 30% to make the playoffs while the Cubs would see a serious dropoff. The reverse would also be true. So, the question becomes: does this series matter?

No. It doesn't.

If we have a repeat of last season where the Cubs sweep the Brewers in Miller Park it means absolutely nothing in the long run of the season. They'll be a .500 team with a higher amount of runs scored than runs allowed. The future will still be bright, we'll still have to wear shades.

Do I want the Brewers to win? Of course. That's a stupid question, damn you for asking it... myself. The point is the sky doesn't fall if they don't. They are still talented and on a good pace this season. That beind said, I really hope they win this series. I don't expect this weekend to be like April, I fully expect more Cubs fans than Brewers fans. And that's fine. Just remember what I said about booing and giving back the douche. Now's your time to shine Milwaukee.

I'm off for the weekend, not catching any games til Tuesday as I want to spend some time with my son. He's getting to the age where I can fully explain to him why he shouldn't wear Affliction shirts, call women whores, live in Illinois or boo. That's about 1 and a half right? Have fun out there.
