Chicago Cubs 2016 NL Central Championship Gear

miller parkThe Pirates’ magic number is just one, which means they’ll probably take care of locking up home field in the Wild Card Game on their own this weekend against the Reds. All the Cubs can do is just try and beat the Brewers twice, and let the chips fall.

Otherwise, this is all just about staying healthy, and letting Kyle Hendricks get in another positive start before the playoffs.

Kyle Schwarber starts again in right field, and I’d say the signal there is loud and clear for Wednesday in Pittsburgh.
