Chicago Cubs have a chance to make the league (and St. Louis Cardinals) take notice

When the Chicago Cubs begin their series tonight with the St. Louis Cardinals, Joe Maddon will assuredly say that the series is just like any other because that's what he's supposed to say.

Chicago Cubs offensive struggles and the road to relevancy

Six days ago, the Chicago Cubs were 39-30, had just slain the two-headed monster of Clayton Kershaw and Zack Greinke of the Los Angeles Dodger and had many asking if, just maybe, the Cubs' above-average performance was just early rumblings of a team that even perpetual optimists were undervaluing.

Cubs couldn’t handle what Cards dealt, edged 3-2 in pitcher’s duel

To put it simply, the Cubs were out hit on a day where offense was hard to come by. Carlos Villanueva and Joe Kelly both made a day out of it, yet the Cardinals starter came out on top ever so slightly.

Allen Craig would send ...
