Chicago Cubs 2016 NL Central Championship Gear

busch stadiumAs it is with the final season of ‘How I Met Your Mother,’ the 2013 Chicago Cubs season mercifully ends long after an ending would have been appropriate.

The day is not without intrigue: tied in the standings, if the Cubs and Twins finish the day tied as well, the Cubs will receive the number four pick in the Draft next year. If the Twins lose and the Cubs win, the Cubs will pick fifth.

Game Info

Chicago Cubs (66-95) at St. Louis Cardinals (96-65), 1:15 CT on CSN.
