Series Preview: Atlanta Braves (5-17) @ Chicago Cubs (16-5)

In Series Previews by dmick89

The Cubs completed the abbreviated 2-game sweep over the Brewers yesterday. They still have 13 of the next 16 at home. Kris Bryant rolled his ankle rounding the bases early in yesterday's extremely long game. He underwent an MRI for precautionary reasons and isn't expected to miss much time. I'd be surprised if it's more than a day or two.  …

Series Preview: Milwaukee Brewers (8-11) at Chicago Cubs (14-5)

In Series Previews by berselius

The Cubs kick off a six game homestand with a three game series against the Brewers. In fact, sixteen of the Cubs next nineteen games are at home, which seems kind of odd, scheduling-wise. They pay the piper going into the all-star break, when they play 14 or 17 on the road, including road series with the Mets and Pirates. Still, …

Series Preview: Chicago Cubs (11-4) at Cincinnati Reds (8-7)

In Series Previews by berselius

The Cubs follow up their series win against the Cardinals with ten straight games against the Reds, Brewers, and Barves. Not too shabby of a start to the season, schedule-wise. The Reds are coming off a series win vs the Rockies but have the Cubs, Mets, and Pirates up next on their slate. They have a winning record despite a …

In Series Previews by berselius

This should be the first of many fun matchups all season. The Cardinals are doing Cardinals things again – their position player WAR leaders on the season are OF Jeremy Hazelbaker, the 500th anonymous outfielder to get called up and produce solid numbers, and Aledmys Diaz, who was their third choice to play shortstop. And just yesterday, their backup catcher …

Series Preview: Colorado Rockies (5-4) vs Chicago Cubs (8-1)

In Series Previews by berselius

The Cubs mowed down one team that's effectively punting 2016, just in time for another such team to head to Wrigley. The Rockies got off to a decent start, taking two of three from both Arizona and the Giants, and losing two of three while giving up 32 runs in three games to a team that began its season with an …

Series Preview: Reds (5-1) @ Cubs (5-1)

In Series Previews by myles

The Cubs went 5-1 on their season-opening road trip, and now come home to face the surprisingly potent Cincinnati Reds. The Reds' offseason was basically notable for who they weren't able to unload (Brandon Phillips, Jay Bruce, and Joey Votto). They did unload Todd Frazier, but they would have loved for all three to get out of town. Instead, Phillips …

Series Preview: Chicago Cubs (2-0) at Arizona Diamondbacks (1-2)

In Series Previews by berselius

That was certainly a…okay…kickoff to the season. Unlike the Dodgers they allowed a run to their opening series opponent, so we might as well just pack it in now. This team just doesn't have what it takes smh. The DBacks made big splashes on several fronts this offseason in an attempt to break up the narrative stranglehold that the Dodgers-Giants …
