Whoa, the Cubs Just Dropped Their 2021 Schedule Already

Chicago Cubs

It was wild enough when MLB released its new 2020 schedules this week, but now they’ve gone nuts and already dropped their *2021* schedules.

This early on, the schedules are tentative, but the league is planning to play a full slate of 162 games next year. The Chicago Cubs open up on April 1 (no joke), at home against the Pirates. Interleague play features the AL Central again, and the Cubs wrap things up in St. Louis on October 1-3.

I’d offer more analysis about the timing of the Central match-ups, the nice accumulation of off-days in the final month of the season, etc., but it just seems crazy early to get into all that before the 2020 season has even happened. So, instead, I mostly just wanted to share the schedule since it just came out. I’m guessing there are planning/logistical/broadcasting reasons this is coming out so early.

Here’s the full Cubs 2021 schedule:
