The Cubs lineup has been a sleeping giant for the past couple games, and during some recent stretches. Last night, someone woke em up. Not sure whether it was some Maddon magic, disco balls, farm animals? Maybe the boys just took some extra BP? Whatever they did, it worked. Maybe it was the conversation Tyler
ESPN —“The last time the Cubs won a World Series, Theodore Roosevelt was president, and the last time they played in a World Series was the year (1945) in which Franklin D. Roosevelt died in office.

The Cubs have lost 5 of their last 9. That includes 2 losses in a 3 game set against division rival Milwaukee, followed by this weekend’s series against San Francisco, where the Cubs dropped another 2 out of 3. Now Chicago travels to St. Louis for 3 more. The Cardinals are 3rd in the division,
