The Cubs keep their road trip going with a stop in St. Louis before returning home to Chicago and CSN's David Kaplan and Todd Hollandsworth are getting you ready with this week's Cubs Road Ahead, presented by Chicagoland and NW Indiana Honda Dealers.
The Cubs are trying to play some consistent baseball and entered play Monday having dropped seven of eight, dating back to the series with the St. Louis Cardinals in Chicago.
The Cubs draw the Cards again in St. Louis, beginning a four-game set Monday night.
Even after returning home, the Cubs won't have a break until next Monday, having to go up against the NL Central-leading Milwaukee Brewers in a weekend series at Wrigley Field.
With all the losing, how does an ultra-competitive guy like Jeff Samardzija deal with that?
"If he keeps the vibe in that room positive, I don't think anybody can step out of line and really go above Jeff right now," Hollandsworth said.
