The Chicago Cubs have won each of their last five series and taken over first place in the NL Central in the process. They’ll hope to stay hot when they return home Tuesday night for the series opener of a three-game set against the Arizona Diamondbacks.
Chicago is a -180 home betting favorite with Jon Lester on the mound at sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark.com. Patrick Corbin will attempt to lead the Diamondbacks to an upset as +155 underdogs.
The Cubs wrapped up a five-game road trip over the weekend with four wins, taking both games over the Chicago White Sox and two of three from the Milwaukee Brewers. After an underwhelming first half that saw Chicago enter the midseason break below .500 at 43-45, the Cubs are now looking more like the team that won the World Series last year with a 13-3 second-half record.
As far as everything besides that though…is there a baseball team that wasn’t providing toilet paper and towels? Or replacing their towels at a decent rate (especially after 162 games of wear and tear)?

It’s apparently important to have this in the CBA since parts of it weren’t happening. However, it does provide the opportunity to imagine how this could play out down the road.

A player getting reprimanded for tucking away some of the hair products for his own use and trying to argue that they were specifically provided under the CBA? A team being publicly called out for not having towels and hand wipes in the locker room at all times?
This could have ramifications (it probably won’t) that ripple far and wide (they won’t). But it is funny to think that someone had to figure out how to incorporate please put toilet paper in the bathrooms into a pile of legalese that affects the entire league.
