    final game of the 4 game series tonight at 7:05 CST, cubs look to take 3 of 4 while cards are hoping for a spilt. Wellemeyer on the mound for STL and Lilly for CHC.... anyone know if its going to be blacked out on ESPN like the cubs/brewers game earlier this year?

    The game shouldn't be blacked out, but it might be rained out.

    It is a national game so no blackout. The weather looks to be dicey thou. Worst thing for either team is a game that goes 3 or 4 innings and then have a rain delay of an hour and its back to a bullpen battle will either team have a bullpen left?

    It's been a really exciting series especially for so early in the season.

    Huge game for the cubs to win. We need to take this.

    Lol... there isn't a game in April that a team 'needs' to win.

    Silly cubs fans.

    It's the Cards, it's in Wrigly, and Cubs will take the out right lead in the division in the win. Throw in the Cards have been a hot team and those are all ingredients for a bigger than average game. It's not September, but both teams really care about this series.

    Games in April matter just as much as games in September. You win here, maybe the game in September doesn't even matter. You ALWAYS want to beat the contenders in your division, that way you separate yourselves from them in the division.

    Well regardless if the Cubs win or not for the first time since 1980 that the Cubs will start the season without losing one of the first four series.

    Wellemeyer should get lit up like a Christmas tree tonight. Skeletor can only work so much magic.

    Also, considering the 3 of the Cubs first 4 series have come against teams in the division, I would say it matters. Games against teams in your division always matter.

    A win tonight will get the Cubs to 7-3 against the Central.

    I wonder with the state of Illinois all but covered in rain at this point if this game will be canceled or are they going to try and wait it out

    Daily Herald says the game won't be made up until July 12. Seeing as how both teams have a scheduled off day tomorrow, that tells me the weather tomorrow is dicey as well.

    yeah it is supposed to rain all day tomorrow as well. On a side note, my wife and I just moved to chicago (actually one of the northern suburbs) about a month ago. This city is absolutely crazy right now with optimism. Bulls, hawks, cubs, and white sox it is incredible the amount of energy in the city right now
