Chicago Cubs

Chicago Cubs President Theo Epstein says the team is totally fine with Major League Baseball checking into whether there was anything improper about the way it hired new manager Joe Maddon.
First 7-game winner?
Adam Wainwright of the Cardinals can become the National League's first seven-game winner of the season tonight. He and his St. Louis teammates are home to the Cubs this evening in an NL Central Division game. Wainwright is 6-2 with a 2.02 earned run average.
MLB schedule
There are likely to be some tired players on the field this afternoon in Pittsburgh, where the Pirates and Cubs close out their season-opening series.
