With September 1st just around the corner, I thought I would take a look at the potential callups for the Cubs to see if there is any reason to get excited about watching the Cubs close out the season. Here are the players I think might get the call.
Rodrigo Lopez pitched 5 1/3 innings of BP, serving up four home runs on 10 hits as the Cubs were battered 6-2 and failed to close out a three-game sweep of the St. Louis Cardinals at Wrigley Field on ESPN’s Sunday Night Baseball.
We interrupt the rampant speculation about the future of the team to bring you something that has become surprisingly familiar this month: another Cubs win. Chicago scored the game’s only runs in the fourth inning en route to a 3-0 win over St. Louis. If you’re heading to Wrigley Field on Sunday night, bring your brooms.
