CHICAGO — This is scoreboard-watching season, but Cubs manager Joe Maddon insisted on Saturday morning that he did not realize the Cardinals were playing the Brewers until someone pointed it out. Given the implications on the standings, Maddon was asked which team he preferred to win.
"Our goal is to win the division," Maddon said. "So you want any kind of help you can possibly get to win the division. So that would be that the Brewers would beat the Cardinals. But again, it doesn't matter. It's just that, 'Cubs win, Cubs win.' We've just got to take care of our own house."
