Astros Fans - Time to put on your Cubs/Braves hats

The Cubs start a 4 game series against the Mets tonight and the Braves start a 3 game series against the Phillies.  Would Cubs and Braves sweeps of their opponents be too much to ask for???

Unfortunately, the Cubs really have little to no incentive to win.  They have already clenched and their main goal now is to get their rotation set up for the playoffs... you could make a case that it would be more beneficial to them to lose the rest of their games this season in order to hurt the Astros chances of making that final game of the season needed.  If the Astros are eliminated before next Monday... then the Cubs don't have to play the final game.  

The Brewers do not play tonight and the Marlins have already lost today.
