Cubs vs Yankees is not something that you have seen oftenVincent Pariseon June 9, 2022 at 5:31 pm

The Chicago Cubs had their game on Wednesday night against the Baltimore Orioles postponed. That sends them into Thursday’s day off ahead of a weekend series with the New York Yankees. That is a matchup that you don’t see very often.

The Yankees play the Chicago White Sox every year but they very rarely ever see the National League Chicago squad. They last played during the 2017 season and only played three games at Wrigley Field. The Cubs lost all three games.

The last time the Cubs played at Yankee Stadium came in 2014. They played two games there and lost them both. Eight years later, the Cubs are going to be looking to get in the win column in that stadium against that historic team.

Chicago and New York both have a lot of history. Both the Cubs and Yankees share their city with another team in the opposite league and all four teams have tremendous history. The Cubs and the Yankees, due to their lack of ever playing each other, make for a really fun matchup.

The Chicago Cubs vs New York Yankees matchup is rather historic.

As of now, Wade Miley is expected to start the first game on Friday. Matt Swarmer is going to get the nod (as of now) against the Yankees on Saturday. The Sunday starter is to be determined. It is interesting to see Marcus Stroman not listed there yet but we will see.

This is going to be the first time that the Chicago Cubs face off against Anthony Rizzo since he became a legend in town. He is a World Series champion as he won it with the 2016 Cubs. He was the face of the franchise for a long time but now he is with New York.

Rizzo has returned to Chicago since the trade but it was against the White Sox. He has yet to return to Wrigley Field but will later this season. It is going to be special to see Rizzo face off against the Cubs because of all the great memories he helped provide them.

The Cubs are not having a good season. Since trading away Anthony Rizzo along with Kris Bryant and Javier Baez, the Cubs have been trying to get a rebuild going. The Yankees, on the other hand, are one of the best teams in Major League Baseball.

We don’t know how long certain players will last on the Cubs’ roster but this is one of the weekends to really enjoy. Cubs vs Yankees is not something that you see often and it deserves recognition as one of the better matchups of the weekend.
