Despite last night's rainout in Pittsburgh, the Cubs are still the hottest team in MLB. They're riding a five-game winning streak into tonight's matchup against the Pirates, who are four games ahead of the North Siders in the standings. The Cubs' current win streak has put them a half-game ahead of the Giants in the race for the final wild-card spot. Considering that their next six games are against those two teams, followed by three against the Brewers (whom the Cubs just swept in Milwaukee), the next week and a half could be a huge factor in the Cubs' postseason hopes! Go Cubs!
