3 reasons to be optimistic - 2. The Wrigley Field factor

Have you ever been to a game at Wrigley Field? How about in 2023? Do you have tickets to a game this week? How electric do you think the atmosphere will be in Chicago? If you know what I'm talking about, you know It's a real thing. The electricity in the crowd will be loud and buzzing, and the Cubs can use it as motivation. Players are tired at this stage of the game, but a roaring Wrigley can ignite a player running on fumes and help him find new heights, even if it means running on adrenaline alone.

The crowd factor this week will be critical for the Cubs' chances. If you're heading to a game, show up and get loud. As stated earlier, the Cubs are averaging 5.19 runs a game in the Friendly Confines, and with their scheduled pitching staff (Assad, Steele, Hendricks), they should be favored in every game. The ability to win these games will be there, but the atmosphere created by the fans will only further motivate the team to perform.
