The Cubs and Cards have an Independence Day series coming up.
I recently wagered with a Cubs' fan friend of mine over the outcome of the last Cubs/Cards series. The Cards snatched the series in a Sunday night rubber match and my friend - as per our wager - was obliged to place a framed photo of Willie McGee on his desk.
The next matchup begins Friday. The Cards are back up to 13 pitchers. Mulder looked to have some serious potential after his brief outing last night.
The question is this: Do I reissue the wager in the name of keeping Mr. McGee on my friend's desk? Will the Cards snag another series from the Cubbies?
