Power Rankings
I'm really looking forward to seeing how this team shapes up this offseason. They've publicly stated their desire to spend (possibly big) on pitching. Jon Lester and, say, Francisco Liriano make this team very interesting.
Boom or bust: The Cubs rank second in the NL in home runs, but 12th in runs scored.
Felix Doubront has been very good in three starts against playoff-caliber competition. Also: Jake Arrieta. That is all that needs to be said.
Once Starlin Castro and Anthony Rizzo fell injured, it was rather obvious the honeymoon would end soon. Still, the 2014 season is a success for the franchise, considering the goals for the season. The winning comes next.
They have two full months with winning records this season. They only had one in each of the previous three seasons, respectively. They are off to a 2-0 start in September, too.
Jorge Soler! All the promotions! Also, can I cherry-pick a date? Of course I can. The Cubs are 17-11 since July 27. That's a half-game behind the Nationals for the best record in the NL over the same period.
It is downright comical to see some people act like Javier Baez can never improve upon his swing-and-miss tendencies. He's freaking 21. Get a grip.
Anthony Rizzo's Tuesday night homer was his first since July 22, but he's still second only to Stanton in the NL.
Definitely overreact to everything Javier Baez does the rest of the year. Everyone knows two months for a 21-year-old player defines the rest of his career.
Since coughing up three runs in the first inning of his major-league debut, 24-year-old Kyle Hendricks has allowed only two runs in 18 1/3 innings pitched.
