April has come and gone, and celebration turned into frustration. There is hope of things to come, but also inconsistencies for the Chicago Cubs.

The opening month of the season is over, and fans of the Chicago Cubs are left scratching their heads. Fanfare turned into confusion and frustration. It was not the team we were looking for. Not now. The curse is over and the Cubs are supposed to dominate this season.

But, that is not what happened. It was a struggle, one that has been difficult to watch. Yet the team still leads the National League Central, over the St. Louis Cardinals currently. The Cincinnati Reds have fallen back to earth a bit, as have the Milwaukee Brewers. It is the Cubs that surprised the division, because of their inconsistent play.

What happened? What problems reared their ugly heads to start the season? Should we be concerned for the entire season? Did anything good happen? We take a look at all of that the month that was for the Chicago Cubs.
