KEY GAME INFORMATION
ST LOUIS: 2017 83-79, third place
MANAGER Mike Matheny (seventh season)
ADDITIONS: LF Marcell Ozuna, RHP Miles Mikolas, RHP Luke Gregerson, RHP Bud Norris, INF-OF Yairo Munoz
SUBTRACTIONS: RHP Lance Lynn, OF Stephen Piscotty, OF Randal Grichuk, RHP Seung-hwan Oh, RHP Juan Nicasio, SS Aledmys Diaz, RHP Trevor Rosenthal
OUTLOOK: The Cardinals have had one losing season since the start of the century, but they are facing immense pressure from fans after finishing behind the Cubs and Brewers in 2017. St. Louis missed the playoffs for a second consecutive year, the first time that's happened since 2007-2008. For the Cardinals to snap that postseason "drought," they'll need bounce-back seasons from several players -- including a healthy Wainwright on the mound and Carpenter at the plate. Few expect the Cardinals to cede the NL Central title to Chicago for a third consecutive year without putting up a fight, but St. Louis will need Ozuna and Pham to produce as expected. If they do, and the Cardinals can bring along their reworked pitching staff, the potential for a return to the playoffs is there.
CHICAGO CUBS: 017 92-70, first place, lost to Dodgers in NLCS
MANAGER Joe Maddon (fourth season)
ADDITIONS: RHP Yu Darvish, RHP Brandon Morrow, RHP Tyler Chatwood, RHP Steve Cishek, LHP Drew Smyly, C Chris Gimenez
SUBTRACTIONS: RHP Wade Davis, C Alex Avila, C Rene Rivera, RHP Jake Arrieta, RHP John Lackey
OUTLOOK: World Series or bust. The acquisition of Darvish, who finalized a $126 million, six-year contract in February, gives Chicago a strong rotation, and the lineup is young, deep and dangerous. A franchise-record six players (Rizzo, Schwarber, Bryant, Happ, Baez and Contreras) belted at least 20 home runs last year, including a major league-record five in an age 25 or younger season. Chicago also scored more than 800 runs in consecutive seasons for the first time since the team surpassed that mark for three consecutive years from 1929-1931. The Cubs have made it to the NL Championship Series for three consecutive seasons, winning it all in 2016 to end a 108-year drought, and there's no reason to think they won't be in the mix for another title this year.
PREVIEW
Cubs-Cards try to beat weather again
 

CHICAGO -- The Chicago Cubs' win-loss record accounts for a total of 15 games, many of which have been played in conditions manager Joe Maddon doesn't believe were conducive to baseball.

But an extended winter has forced five postponements, including on Wednesday when a forecast of rain and sleet forced the Cubs and St. Louis Cardinals to extend their series to a scheduled off-day on Thursday.

The postponement, the third at Wrigley Field since Sunday, came a day after the Cardinals won the pushed-back first game of the series on a night when temperatures were in the 30s and the wind chill was in the 20s.

And for a Cubs team waiting for its starting pitching and sporadic offense to heat up, it has become a matter of just trying to play through it.

"It's all how you put it in perspective," first baseman Anthony Rizzo told reporters after his first game back off the disabled list. "You can let it make you miserable or you can just go out and play. It is what it is. You know the sunny days are coming. Both on the field and as a group. You just keep playing through it."

After being slated to pitch on Wednesday, left-hander Jon Lester (1-0, 4.40 ERA) will pitch Thursday against the Cardinals. Lester has produced a mixed bag of results this season.

Lester scattered seven hits and allowed four earned runs in his only start at Wrigley this year. In 14 career starts against St. Louis, Lester is 5-4 with a 2.30 ERA.

The Cardinals, who have won five straight games, will start Luke Weaver in Thursday's game, which is weather permitting. The forecast calls for 1-to-2 inches of snow to fall overnight, which could put yet another matinee start at Wrigley in jeopardy.

Weaver was pushed into the Wednesday starting assignment in place of Michael Wacha, who has struggled at Wrigley Field. Wacha will instead make his next start on Friday against Cincinnati on eight days rest.

Weaver (2-0, 2.08) will make his third start and has yet to allow more than five hits or two earned runs in any of his outings. Weaver has, however, struggled in his two career starts against the Cubs, against whom he is 0-1 with a 12.86 ERA.

The moves manager Mike Matheny has made aren't limited to his pitching staff.

While third baseman Jedd Gyorko came off the disabled list after missing two weeks with hamstring injury, Matheny elected to keep him out of the lineup. Greg Garcia started at third on Tuesday with Matt Carpenter playing at second in place of struggling Kolten Wong.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported Wednesday that minor league outfielder Tyler O'Neill has joined the Cardinals and will be activated on Thursday.

O'Neill already has hit six home runs at Triple-A Memphis with a Pacific League-best 18 RBIs. O'Neill's arrival could mean that center fielder Tommy Pham's groin soreness could be more of an issue that originally believed.

With all the movement, however, Matheny insists everything will take care of itself.

"We're trying to put pieces together to try to make it look right," Matheny told reporters Wednesday, according to MLB.com. "Greg Garcia will be a part of it. Jedd Gyorko will be a part of it soon. And Kolten Wong is going to continue to be a part of it, but there are things to work on.

"When it's not clicking, you have to go back to the drawing board and figure something out and make the most of those opportunities. "
