Chicago Cubs 2016 NL Central Championship Gear

Home sweet home? Maybe. Let’s just say the Cubs better take an early lead … and then not blow it late. Folks are very much on the ledge in Chicago.

Travis Wood gets his third start, and will probably provide most of the Cubs’ offense. Blake Lalli draws another start behind the plate.

As mentioned in the Series Preview, Carlos Quentin will indeed make his 2012 debut today against the Cubs. Hopefully Wood is less than accommodating.
