Chicago Cubs 2016 NL Central Championship Gear

wrigley outfieldWith the first two games in this four-game set in the bag, the Cubs now have two chances to win the series against the Braves. And you would totally take that.

Dan Haren will look to put in his first quality start with the Cubs – so far, he’s been consistently not terrible, but consistently not good. There’s some value in that as a fifth starter, but a six-inning, three-run outing would be nice.

The Braves’ starter, Williams Perez, hasn’t been terribly successful thus far in 2015. Hopefully that continues.
