The Chicago Cubs have had an eventful 2016 season so far. The season’s first quarter had its fair share of ups and downs and the Cubs’ fans are enjoying the topsyturvy ride. The Cubs started the 2016 campaign as the hottest team in the MLB; they hit the ground running and got off to their best start since the 1907 season. Helped by the efforts of players like Jake Arrieta and Dexter Fowler, the team established a significant lead in the National League’s Central Division and looked to be cruising to the playoffs.
However, the team met with several speed bumps, mostly in the form of injuries. Jason Heyward and Kyle Schawber were both sidelined and squad’s depth and the team’s mettle were tested during the opening weeks of the season. The team’s results were poor in the latter half of the opening quarter, but their good start means that they are still in a very good position.
As it is, the Cubs have finished the first quarter with a 29-13 record, which is currently the best in the MLB. The team leads their division with a six game lead over the second placed Pittsburgh Pirates and statistics are suggesting that they will be the only team to cross the 100 win mark this year.
If the Cubs can maintain this form till the end of the season, they can very well win their first pennant since 1945 and reach the World Series once again. Only time will tell if that does actually happen.
Formed in 1870, Chicago Cubs hold the record for being the club that has been functioning for the longest time from the same city. The Cubs play in the Central Division and are placed in the National League of the MLB. The franchise had to reinvent its identity after two decades as it was known as the Chicago White Stockings in the beginning but later converted to Chicago Cubs before the start of the 1907 season. The team is owned by the Ricketts family and is managed by Joe Maddon.
The ‘North Siders’ as the Cubs are sometimes called due to the location of Wrigley Field, have won 3 World Series titles, 16 National League pennants and 5 division titles. Other notable achievements of the club include the highest number of games won in a single season which stands at 116. Another record the club holds is for the highest winning percentage for a season at 0.763, a feat that has yet to be broken. The Cubs will be hoping that this is the year they break their drought; a famous victory over the Diamondbacks may be just the boost they need.
Standing in the way of another home victory will be the dangerous Arizona Diamondbacks. The franchise is a relative newcomer to the league, having been established in 1998. Yet it quickly showed its intent when it won the World Series championship in 2001. In the process, the club broke the record for the fastest expansion team to lift the coveted trophy. They are not a team to be taken lightly. Buy Chicago Cubs vs. Arizona Diamondbacks tickets to watch the much anticipated game.

They also dominate the Cubs as they have won 74 games against them and lost 64. But the Cubs are on a historic rebound and due to this the 2017 MLB season will be unpredictable.
