CHICAGO - The Cubs did so well during the regular season that they earned themselves a four-day break after the regular season before the playoffs.
That can be good or bad.
Rest is never a negative after a 162-game season but losing rhythm is always a risk for the major league's best team.
Joe Maddon took care of that with a simulated game on Tuesday as the hitters and pitchers got some work in before their NLDS opener on Friday night.
Mark Grote, the pre-and-postgame host for Cubs broadcasts on 670 The Score, came on Sports Feed Tuesday to talk more about the team as they approach the NLDS.
