We decided to have a staff meeting to discuss the upcoming season.

Obviously, we'll have to wait and see how much, if any of the season does get played. With surging cases in a few areas, issues with player testing, and positive cases within baseball, there is not overwhelming optimism that this truncated season will be played. That said, we've got some reactions from the Cubs DNA staff on this years adjusted Cubs schedule.


Pronk: This schedule seems surprisingly easy. The Cubs have 7/10 home games against St. Louis and Milwaukee. Then they are on the road for 7/10 games against Pittsburgh and Cincinnati, two places I feel that they play well at. They are also at home against the Twins for their only 3 games against them. Against some of these tougher teams, they've got a home field advantage.


Staci: That's a lot of games against the Piebutts, Royals, Tigers, and a probably not great Cleveland team. If you don't buy into the Reds being much more than a .500 squad (which I don't unless Joey Votto turns back into his MVP-style self) and you actually look at the Brewers current roster, the Cardinals, Twins and maybe the White Sox are the only true potential challenges here. I like our chances, is what I'm saying.


AssMatt: With the past few seasons seemingly stacked against them, *IF* they are able to complete the season, the Cubs really do have one of the best chances of making the postseason. They also have the second lowest travel miles just behind the Booers. Taking out the unpredictability of the pandemic, the Cubs have one of the best chances in baseball.


Brooke: Brooke is slammed at work, but we're sure she has an opinion.


PhSteven: Back before Covid rocked the world I picked the Cubs to win the division. The Brewers took a large step back in my mind, the Reds didn't make enough moves to vault them into first, and the Cardinals just don't scare me at all. I still pick the Cubs to win the division although I do think it will only be a game or two ahead of the second place team.


Tina: The White Sox and Reds are going to be annoying, but I still like our chances to take the division. However, I am not optimistic that this season will be played in full. Prove me wrong, people!
