Free Chicago Cubs vs. New York Mets MLB Prediction:
This game will be interesting because both teams have been struggling lately, but I’m taking the Cubs in this one. Lackey has been one of the best performers in this Cubs rotation.
I think that he will be able to control this Mets lineup and be able to keep them in check in this one.
