2021 Gameday Post
The Cubs have matched their season high for *checks notes* games lost in a row, at eleven. Next, they get to face the second place Reds, who trail the Brewers by 8 games and are fighting for a Wild Card spot. See below for the matchups in this three-game series.
The Cubs get a chance to bite a chunk out of the divisional leader a 4-game series. With key pieces of the future still in the minors (or otherwise unavailable), Cubs fans will have a chance to check out possible corner OF Greg Deichmann and young lefty Justin Steele in this series. The Brewers are mostly TBD with regard to their starters. So, see below for the best available info as the series begins.
The Cubs return home to take on their south side neighbors, now joined by recent Cubs Craig Kimbrel and Ryan Tepera. The White Sox are enjoying a sizeable lead in the AL Central and have about two months to stay healthy and fine tune things for a playoff run. The Cubs on the other hand will be working through a roster of current journeymen and some potential future role players to see who might be useful when some prospects reinforce the roster (and who might be able to get themselves a major league offer this offseason). See below for the projected matchups.
