Happy Monday, dear readers. Hope everyone has some eventful Memorial Day festivities planned.

I'll be out at the Friendly Confines, where the Cubs will host the Brewers for a split doubleheader to kick off a four-game series. Originally, it was supposed to be a regular three-game set, but remember that rainout on the first Friday of the year? This is the day they decided to reschedule the game on. At the time, I didn't consider what the upcoming stretch would look like with another game added into the mix, but now I can see how rough of a stretch it's going to be.

I can tell you why here, or I can tell you to keep on reading to find out. Personally, I think the second option is best, because there are some other news, notes and nuggets (including an appearance from my more serious side) that you'll want to take a peak at.

Let's get into it. Here are your Monday morning Cubs thoughts for May 30.
