Theres nothing I can really say to them that would make a difference right now, Cubs manager Joe Maddon said inside Wrigley Fields underground interview room on Sept. 10, answering a broad postgame question about team meetings at the end of a lost weekend where the Milwaukee Brewers outscored the defending World Series champs 20-3. Maddon chuckled at that one-liner and he should have the last laugh on this Cubs season. Within one week basically the time it took for the entire Bears season/Mike Glennon experiment to crater the Cubs went from being on the ropes to landing a knockout punch against the Cardinals and doubling their lead over the Brewers in the National League Central.
