At the start of this season I was hoping that they would match their 2015 total, but was firguring that they'd actuallly come in around 94 or 95.
Boy was I wrong.
On Wednesday they won their 97th game, equallying last year. But there are still ten more games to go. Even a 5-5 record would give them 102 wins for the year.
The franchise has cracked the century mark just five times and the most recent was 1935. You could say that they are due.
This is just another of the many "first time in xxxy years" event. The big question --- will they do something that hasn't been done since 1908??
No Cub has ever worn #97, so I've got a 9 and a 7
