About CHC


After missing the playoffs in 2019 and having a manager change to David Bell from Joe Maddon, the Cubs returned to the top of the National League Central in 2020. But the season ended on a down note when the Miami Marlins swept the Cubbies in two games in the first-round series, which was a unique feature to the 60-game 2020 season. 

The Cubs have weakened themselves a bit in pitching, trading Yu Darvish and letting Jon Lester and Jose Quintana walk in free agency. Kyle Schwarber is also gone on offense with the remaining core players only together for possibly one more season.

General manager Theo Epstein is also gone, taking a job in the MLB front office for 2021.

2021 Featured Players

On the pitching side, Kyle Hendricks remains and is the de facto ace of the staff, but he has declined a bit over the past couple of seasons. Zach Davies and his strong changeup is in the No. 2 spot, and new names Alec Mills, Adbert Alzolay, and Tyson Miller round out the rotation. Craig Kimbrel has also shown signs of decline in the closer spot.

The good news for the Cubs is that they should still be able to score runs. Willson Contreras, Anthony Rizzo, Kris Bryant, Javier Baez, Ian Happ, and Jason Heyward are all back and stalwarts in the lineup. Second baseman David Bote and centerfielder Nico Hoerner are the newcomers.

Bet on the Chicago Cubs! Chicago Cubs Odds for 2021

After winning the World Series in 2016 and having great odds through the 2019 season, the Cubbies have taken a hit in the odds department, as a bet on the Chicago Cubs to win the World Series will pay out at a healthy 40/1. The Chicago Cubs odds to win the National League pennant stand at 22/1 to open the season, and the Chicago Cubs odds to win the NL Central are +500, which puts them behind St. Louis, Cincinnati, and Milwaukee in the division race.

Chicago Cubs Logo, Uniform & Stadium History

The Cubs have a rich history, and most of it is as lovable losers. Prior to this stretch of reaching the playoffs in five of the last six seasons, Chicago had only reached the postseason six times since division play started in 1969. The Cubs have had some famous players in that time, including Ferguson Jenkins, Ernie Banks, Billy Williams, Ryne Sandberg, Sammy Sosa, Ron Santo, and Mark Grace. 

Finally in 2016, the Cubs, led by Maddon and most of this current group, outlasted the Cleveland Indians to win their first World Series since 1908 in their first Fall Classic appearance since 1945. 

The Cubs have called Wrigley Field home since 1916, with the field's distinctive features like ivy on the outfield walls and apartment buildings behind the bleachers. The stadium was also the last one in the majors to install lights, hosting its first night game in 1988. The Cubs still play the majority of their weekday games in the afternoon. 

Chicago's uniforms have remained unchanged for generations. A blue cap with a red C in it with a white outline, a pinstriped home uniform with the Cubs logo on the left side of the uniform, and road grays with "CHICAGO" written across the front in blue. The Cubs were also one of the first teams to introduce an alternate uniform, which is an all-blue top with the same logo from the home white jersey on the front.
