The Cubs took on the Milwaukee Brewers on Friday at Wrigley Field. The Cubs offense got off to a hot start, including a 3-run first inning highlighted by Franmil Reyes’ RBI Triple. Christopher Morel’s two run homer gave the Cubs the lead in the sixth and they never looked back, winning the game 8-7. Join Luke, Cody, and Ryan on…

The Cubs continued their series vs the Nationals on Tuesday Night in DC. Justin Steele got the call for the Cubs and was impressive yet again. Steele struck out five, only allowing 1 run in 6 innings pitched. The Cubs bullpen blew a late 4-0 lead, and the Cubs were able to escape with a 7-5 win in extra innings.…
Happy Monday, friends.
What a week (and, really, what a month) it was. There's a whole lot to get into this Monday, and of course, I'll be starting things off with the Field of Dreams game.

Beyond that, the Cubs made some notable roster moves in the week, and I wanted to take a bit of a closer look at them. And in addition, a Rays pitcher nearly accomplished a feat that no pitcher in the long history of the Cubs ever has, and it was pretty fascinating to take a closer look at the time a Cubs pitcher came oh-so-close to doing it.
I'll get into more of that below, so let's go. Here are your Monday morning Cubs thoughts.
