The Cubs took their first Cactus League loss yesterday to the Dodgers 7-6 in Glendale. Starting today the Cubs have full slate of games this week at Hohokam Stadium, kicking off with this afternoon’s contest against the Colorado Rockies. The Dodgers, Athletics, and Diamondbacks round out the Cubs week on Center Street, before they travel to Scottsdale on Saturday to play the Giants. If you picked this week to get out of Chicago and enjoy some Cubs spring training in AZ, you made a great call. With a winter storm nipping at the Windy City, Mesa is looking pretty attractive right now. Here’s our ten day forecast; this type of weather is a huge reason why the Cactus League has ballooned to 15 teams.
Talk with you later today after the game. Go Cubs!!
