Nice at bat by Happ there to take the lead in the 7th.

Welp, at least we won't go 0-162 this year.

Being serious though anytime you win a game when Burnes is the opposing starter is an accomplishment.

Have a feeling this bullpen could be an issue though as season goes on.

These Cubs could seriously challenge for…a .500 record. Unlikely, but you never know. You’ve never heard of most of them but that means they all have something to prove. I do appreciate the attempt at trying to get more contact hitters in the lineup but given that this roster isn’t really designed to actually win right now, I also anticipate painful stretches. They could have the opposite problem of a year ago where the hits and runs come, but the pitching is so bad they can’t hold other teams off.
