What Would It Take Threedux

Box Score

In light of recent above average play, I thought I'd rehash What It Would Take to make the playoffs in 2009. I don't have much time because I've already used 2 hours of work time to think about and create this, but basically, even if we play .650 ball and the rest of the teams we are chasing play .500 for the rest of the season, we'd still fall short. In fact, looking at the Cubs remaining schedule, it's entirely possible that they could go 14-5 to finish the season and even that would still leave them at 89-73, one game behind Colorado's .500 remaining ball... Ouch. Go Cubs.
