Coming off the exciting series win over the rival Milwaukee Brewers thanks to the heroics of Jason Heyward and Alec Mills, the Cubs seemed primed for a letdown. When Jeremy Jeffress blew the save in game one, it seemed like the stage was set for the Cubs to go back to their mediocre play that has marred the second half of this strange 2020 season.

With all that is going on in our world, with all the happiness and joy seeming to vanish at every opportunity, go ahead and smile, Cubs fans. Alec Mills threw a no-hitter.
Today we discussed the struggles of the core, the positives coming out of the bullpen, and whether or not Brailyn Marquez could propel the Cubs to contender status.
