wrigley field from right bleachersIf the Cubs were competitive this year, tonight’s game would be absolutely unbelieveable. Sunday night on ESPN. Wrigley Field. Last game of the first half. Two All-Stars facing each other on the mound. And it’s Cubs/Cards, with the Cubs going for a series win in four.

Just typing that out … it’s still pretty awesome, even if the Cubs are in the middle of a sell-off.

Game Info

St. Louis Cardinals (56-36) at Chicago Cubs (42-50), 7:05 CT on ESPN.
