It's easy to envision Neil Ramirez trotting out of the bullpen for a key eighth inning in mid-October.
The Cubs put on another dog-and-pony show Saturday morning while the St. Louis Cardinals waited to play for the National League pennant that night.
The Cubs are going to be really good in the future. Just ask them. It might be next season. It could be the year after that. And just wait until the new TV deal finally kicks in.
