This Week's Sports Illustrated... "Wrigleyville"

The red hot Chicago Cubs are one of this weeks Sports Illustrated regional cover stories, "Wrigleyville is Winnerville."

Through Monday's ballgames the Cubs are 72-51, third place in the National League Central Division, but also a solid 2nd in the N.L. Wild Card standings, 6.5 games ahead of the San Francisco Giants.

The Cubs begin a West Coast road trip with a three game series in San Francisco.

This is a second consecutive week with baseball on the S.I. cover,  following the Jason Heyward and the St. Louis Cardinals.

The Cardinals, with baseball's best record at 79-45, lead the Pittsburgh Pirates (75-48), by 3.5 games in the N.L. Central, followed bt the Cubbies.

The way the N.L. Central teams are playing we could see a baseball three-peat next week if the Pirates stay hot as well.

We always like it when our National Pastime gracesmagazine covers.

Play Ball!
