The Bombers are living as their name would indicate, with over 100 homers hit already on the season. Yankee Stadium can't hold them and they are getting a look at some soft pitching at hitter-friendly Wrigley should be enough reason to believe they will be in good shape here. They are playing well and the pen has moved into the top five in baseball. Doug Davis serves up a lot of long ones, with 32 in his last 270 innings. The Yanks are 4-0 in their last four on the road vs. a lefty and vs. the NL Central they are 23-8 in their 31. The Cubs are not ripe for any upset here as they are 19-43 in their last 62 as a home dog. Take New York for the money.
