May 14 – 15; @ Cardinals – Series Preview

 St. Louis Cardinals Logo - Two cardinals perched on a yellow bat between Cardinals script in red

Nothing says fun like a two game series, it’s rare, but they Cubs have two of them this week, the first being in St. Louis against the Cardinals.  This is the third time already that these two teams have faced each other.  The Cubs have played the Cardinals tough so far, splitting the six games they have played.  The Cubs lost two out of three in St. Louis and took two out of three from St. Louis in Chicago.  The Cardinals are licking their wounds after being swept over the weekend by the red-hot Braves.  While the Cubs come in after avoiding the sweep in Milwaukee yesterday afternoon.  If the Cubs are going to have success in this series they are going to need a solid effort from their starters.  The Cubs pen looks tired, and Sveum is having to go to guys that no one in the Northern hemisphere trusts late in games.  If the Cubs can get deep outings they should be in a great spot to get a split or even sweep the short two game set.  Full preview/breakdown after the jump.
