The Chicago Cubs are in the middle of a hot streak. They have played well lately despite their roster not being very good. We all know by now about how they traded Anthony Rizzo, Javier Baez, and Kris Bryant at the trade deadline earlier this year. It has been tough for them in 2021 but things could turn around quickly if they do things the right way.
In the meantime, they still have to finish this season. That means that they have to host the San Francisco Giants at Wrigley Field this weekend. That means that Kris Bryant will make his return to Wrigley for the first time since the trade. Javier Baez and the Mets won’t be coming back to Chicago this season and Anthony Rizzo missed his series against the Chicago White Sox thanks to a COVID-19 diagnosis.
