A Cubs title of any kind is bound to set the word processors tapping. Here is a sampling of the reaction to their divisional title:

  • The difference is Dusty Baker. So say many of the Cubs, writes Phil Arvia of the Daily Southtown. Players like Eric Karros believe the team's destiny was shaped the day he was hired to run things.

  • Thomas Boswell of the Washington Post writes that we have become so used to things not going the Cubs' way that the possibilities now seem endless in the wake of everything going their way on Saturday.
