The Chicago Cubs have been one of the leagues hottest teams post All-Star break. They bought at the trade deadline and their playoff odds have increased the most among any team since the mid summer classic concluded.
Over the weekend they played another playoff contending team in the Toronto Blue Jays. Chicago managed to take two out of three games with their lone loss coming on Sunday in an 11-4 loss. Despite the defeat fans on social media have remained optimistic for now their schedule lightens up to the tune of their next four series being against below .500 teams in the Chicago White Sox, Kansas City Royals, Detroit Tigers, and Pittsburgh Pirates.
Chicago Cubs fans remain optimistic despite Sundays 11-4 loss to the Toronto Blue Jays.
2 vs Sox and 3 vs Royals
Reds vs Cleveland (2 games) then Toronto
Brew @ LAD and @ Texas (6 games)
Miami vs Houston and @ LAD
Cubs can really make up ground on the Brewers and really build a lead in WC this upcoming week.
