The Cubs have not been having a good week running into the hot Rockies after the Yankees roughed them up.
Now they are on the road at rival St. Louis who is playing much better. CHC is only .500 heading into the weekend, hard to imagine for this group.
Kris Bryant is picking it up but other in the lineup are really struggling with consistency.
Putting a lot of pressure on a staff that is not as sharp as a year ago.
Jon Lester is one of those pitchers that has not been as sharp as a year ago.
However, the veteran is coming off his best outing so I am would not write him off too soon.
The Cubs bullpen is putting up good numbers but they have also pitched the second most innings in the Majors. That might be something to monitor.
St. Louis Cardinals
Heading into Friday’s series opener the Cardinals had won six straight.
That nudged them to the top of the division and if they have a good weekend they could stay there a little while.
Jedd Gyorko hit 30 homers last year and as much as they try to phase him out he keeps slugging away. He is leading the team with a .351 average.
Michael Wacha is part of a staff that has overperformed.
I am sure we can all remember how he burst onto the scene but he was not good coming off injury a year ago. If he is right maybe STL has the pitcher who won 17 games in 2015.
His control has been good and I believe that every one of his starts this season would qualify as a quality start.

Free Chicago Cubs vs. St. Louis Cardinals MLB Prediction:
Pretty good value with the home side given the recent form of the two clubs.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Cubs -117
Still I like the Cubbies here. Lester seems to be getting back to his old self and you don’t have to pay too much of a premium with the Champs.
