Chicago Cubs: Who do the Cardinals have to face on the road?
The Cardinals will play the Pirates and the Cubs on the road and will also play the Arizona Diamondbacks and the Colorado Rockies who are (34-31) at home. I don’t think the Pirates will give the Cardinals too much trouble with the Cards most likely winning two of three.
The Cubs will get a chance during a four-game series at Wrigley Field to put the hurt on the Cardinals. Immediately following that intense four-game series with the Cubs, the Cardinals have to fly to Arizona to take on the Diamondbacks. Hopefully, the series will soften up the Cardinals and Arizona can win one of the games in that series as well.
For both teams, the road may be most difficult in each other’s park. I see the Cubs coming off the road with a (7-7) record. The Cardinals may do a little better on the road in the last 30 days with a (7-6) record. If you add up the home and road predictions for the last 30 days, I see the Cubs finishing the month of September (16-11) and the Cardinals at (14-13).
Will those two games be enough for the Cubs to take the Division?
Will it be legendary or wait ’till next year?
This I gotta see.
