    Summing up the Cubs' impressive, potentially season-altering homestand

    For the third straight year, the Cubs' season could hinge on an important series with the San Francisco Giants. In August of 2015, the Cubs swept the Giants in a four-game set at Wrigley Field and they built off that momentum to win 97 games and make it all the way to the National League Championship Series.

    The Cardinals should host Pride Night at Busch Stadium

    When Major League Baseball teams announce that they are hosting Pride Nights, events designed to show solidarity with the local LGBT community, backlash is inevitable. Fans threatening to boycott the game. Sophomoric jokes which serve no purpose but to reveal the immaturity of those telling them. Replies on social media that the night is unnecessary. And on a rare occasion that the St. Louis Cardinals’ Twitter account has alluded to the LGBT community, it was flooded with angry responses. If the St. Louis Cardinals were to announce some form of LGBT Pride Night, which over half of the teams in MLB intend to do in 2017, there would be backlash. Some fans would complain. I’m not sure that this
