The Cubs could use more scheduling like this: they were off for a day ahead of the weekend series in Oakland, swept the Athletics, are off again today ahead of two against the Angels and a four game series against distant-2nd Cardinals at home, and then have another day off before finishing off their homestand with four against Milwaukee. This contrasts against the 24-straight games the Cubs limped to the All Star break to. In a season full of great baseball, the Cubs are now a season-high 28 games over .500 with a monster 11.5 game lead in the division. As Lin Brehmer likes to say, it’s great to be alive!
