I don't normally post here (but have read along almost all season!), but I have to say "Go Cubs Go!" to all the talk of who to root for against them ;)
I'm cautiously optimistic, but as my Cardinals fan husband likes to remind me, the Cubs could easily end up going the route of the Cardinals last year (although I think Cubs are much healthier than the Cards were at this time last year).
That being said, I'd much rather see the Mets than the Giants.
