Crazy first inning.

As much as it pains me to say it, the Cubs are well positioned in the Central right now. The Cardinals could fall apart if we don't figure out a way to avoid too much mileage on the bullpen.

They have looked good. Pitching needs a little work, but as a core they are likely to be relevant for a few years to come.

And the Cardinals are headed in the opposite direction.

The Cubs could absolutely win the division.

Theo has put the Cubs in a great position.  That INF of Bryant, Castro, Russell, and Rizzo could be the starting INF at a ASG in a couple of years.  Add in Soler and it will be a long time before we see a young core like this again.  Add in Almora and Schwarber at AA, this Cubs lineup will be scary.

Think it would be smart to flip Baez for a young pitcher since there is a need there after Lester and Arrieta.  I know Edwards is on the farm, but it looks like the has been transitioned to the pen at least for now.  Maybe they could flip him to the Mets for someone like Steven Matz.

Great job last night by Jake Arrieta against the Nats.

Ross made an excellent pick off throw to first base to end the game.

Herrera, Fowler, and Montero all contributed today. Keep this up, then add the big guns, and there's no reason why they can't be an effective offensive team.

Cubs activated Chris Denorfia.

He is in the lineup today and doing damage.

2 hits and a run scored so far today.

Ugly at Detroit. No support for Lester, and a guy who's lost his last four starts pitches like a Cy Young contender.

By sweeping the Mets yesterday the Cubs swept a season series of more than six games for the first time since 1885.

"Not since Barry Bonds was still playing has a lefty approached what Rizzo is doing off southpaws. It’s an amazing statistic knowing how hard it can be for left-handed hitters to hit against lefty pitchers."

I think the Cubs and Pirates will be the NL wild card reps this season.  As a Dodger fan I hope we hold on in the west.  I don't think the loser between the Dodgers and midgets will make the wild card. Have to win the division!

I never thought Schwarber would be a top 10 prospect like he has turned out to be right now, but I thought it was a very smart pick by the Cubs at 4 last year.  He was a borderline top 10 prospect in the draft because his ability to stick behind the plate at C is still a huge question mark, but he was the top college bat available.  Signing him as far underslot as they did allowed the Cubs to pick three late first/second round type talents in the 4th, 5th, and 6th rounds in Sands, Steele, and Cease.  It appears he is probably a corner OF, but it would be ideal for the Cubs if he could stick behind the plate at C because they have an insane amount of talented young position players.

4-3 win completes the sweep at Milwaukee. Bryant hurt his head trying to stretch an RBI single. He looked woozy. Hope it's not serious.

Fowler looked good at leadoff man, going 3-5 with a home run, and the top three hitters in the lineup went 7 for 13. Nice to see Lester get some support. They are getting offensive help from a lot of different guys. I really like Soler in RF. They're becoming a good team-they seem to bounce back from losses better than I've noticed in the past.

Another good win. Bryant with a HR, Fowler a triple, and Addison Russell had 3 hits, including a double. Batting him 9th in the lineup seems to be working. They also are showing more patience at the plate, drawing six walks today.
