Hey hey! The MLB-best Cubs & Padres got rained out on Monday in Chicago -- but the Pirates lost, dropping the CMN to 124.

The first place Cubs face off against San Diego on Tuesday night at Wrigley. Jon Lester takes the hill for the Cubs; Cesar Vargas pitches for the Friars.

The rainout will be made up on Wednesday as part of a day / night doubleheader.

Let's go!

NL Central Standings
Team        W   L    PCT    GB
Cubs       24   6   .800    --
Pirates    17  15   .531   8.0
Cards      16  15   .500   9.0

It's only May, but you've gotta like the statisticians' take on the 2016 Cubs. These numbers don't hurt:
  • Hitting: best in runs scored, OBP, and walks taken.
  • Pitching: lowest in runs allowed & ERA, hits allowed & BAA, and WHIP.
