Pre-Gamin’: Mets at Cubs (6:40 CT) – Lineups, Broadcast Info, Game Thread

Chicago Cubs

Mets, Brewers, Braves, Reds, Dodgers … those are the Cubs next five opponents and 16 games. To put that in perspective, that’s three first place teams and the Brewers, who’ve beaten the Cubs 4 out of 6 times already. It’s not unfair to say that these next two weeks could ultimately define the rest of the Cubs season.

Let’s hope they get out to a good start behind Jake Arrieta tonight. At least things have been trending up?
