The Cubs get their first major test of the year in St. Louis this weekend.  The Cardinals are crushing the ball, and not giving up to many runs either, that’s usually a recipe for success.  The Cardinals sit atop the Central Division aty a 5-2 record and have shown no signs of slowing down coming off of their Championship season last year.  The Cubs left Wrigley with a better taste in their mouth after beating the Brewers 8-0 on Thursday afternoon.  However, the Cubs aren’t satisified with their play as they currently sit at the bottom of the Central with a 2-5 record.  I wouldn’t be surprised if the Cubs sneak up on the Cards this weekend and steal 2 out of 3 games.  The Cubs played better than that 2-5 record indicates on the season opening home stand, and I think a trip on the road might do them some good.  Go Cubs!
