Happy Monday, folks.

The long, long week is finally over. No more 11 games in nine days. No more two doubleheaders within one week.

The long week felt even longer when the Cubs and Cardinals went into extras last night, the third time Cubs fans got free baseball at Wrigley Field this past week (and fourth if you count last Sunday’s 12-inning affair on the South Side). The Cubs’ record didn’t come out of it looking as good as it could’ve, but they’ll have their first off-day in a while today to regroup, and so do we.

So let’s get going. Here are your Monday morning Cubs thoughts for June 6.
