The Glorious Chicago Cubs Franchise has won it’s 10,000th game!
The Chicago Cubs are only the second MLB team to reach the 10,000 win milestone. The first team to reach 10,000 wins was the Giants (currently of San Francisco and formerly of New York) with 10,192 wins.
The Chicago Cubs franchise has more wins than the New York Yankees. What does this mean? IT MEANS THE CUBS ARE BETTER THAN THE YANKEES. Just count the wins.
The Yankees may have won more World Series but winning the World Series doesn’t mean anything. C’mon, the 2006 S. Louis Cardinals won it and they stunk. The Marlins won a couple and they can’t sell out games. I think the Diamondbacks won a world series but everyone I ask just looks at me and says”Who are the Diamondbacks?”.
Lots of teams have won the world series but only two have won 10,000 games and one of those teams are the Chicago Cubs. So if you put the Cubs and the Giants side by side, who’s the better team? Obviously it’s not the Giants who had Willie Mays and that steroid guy what’s his name and that’s it. The Cubs had Ernie Banks, Billy Williams, Fergie Jenkins, Ron Santo, Ryne Sandberg, Cap Anson, Stan Hack, Gabby Hartnett, Mordecai Brown, etc, etc, etc. The Cubs are better. The Chicago Cubs are the greatest baseball franchise of all time.
Back to Win number 10K for the Cubs. The Cubs needed 10 innings to get win number 10,000. The winning pitcher for victory number 10,000 was Kerry Wood who blew the save because he’d rather have the historic win. Carlos Marmol got the save but it’s the winning pitcher that everyone will remember. 10,000 wins, 10 innings, 100 years of waiting for the world series win. Notice all those one’s and Zeros?
Something is going on here. I think the evidence points to the fact that this is the Cubs year. A hero has risen from a far away land. A prophet speaks. Ronny Cedeno hit a grand slam. The Cubs lead the National League in on base percentage and pitches per at bat.
The signs continue to point to one thing: This is the Cubs year.
That or the apocalypse is nigh.
