April Looms Large for Cubs

I was taking a look at the Cubs' schedule for this season a couple days ago and was surprised to see they play 22 of their 26 games in April against NL Central foes, including six games apiece against St. Louis and Milwaukee, who figure to be two of the better teams in the division. Now, while April can never really be a make-or-break month (see the 2006 Minnesota Twins), the Cubs can build a nice cushion early in the season with a strong first month. If they can break out of the gates hot and win 17 games, they'd set themselves up beautifully for the rest of the year. Of course, if they play poorly, they'll be digging themselves into a hole before the calendar turned to May. Either way, the month of April could go a long way to determining the Cubs' success this season.


Usually when the wind blows in from the outfield in spring the Cubs seem to have a better year. Gives their pitchers more confidence. That's been my unscientific rule of thumb.
