We are getting close to summertime! The Chicago Cubs and the rest of Major League Baseball get their season underway today! The Cubs are going to play a 1:20 game against the Pittsburgh Pirates to get their campaign going. This is a unique Opening Day for them as it is going to set the tone for the way they look at the rest of the season. Going against one of the worst teams in the league with Kyle Hendricks on the mound is a great way to get going.
The Chicago Cubs have a lot on their plate going into Opening Day 2021.
During the heart of the pandemic, most sports fans watched “The Last Dance” on ESPN. It was a documentary that went over the 1998 Chicago Bulls and everything that came before it. There were some great moments during that season but the point of the show was the demise of their core at the season’s end. It sort of feels like something similar is happening with the Cubs.
