  1. As a Cub fan I agree. They stink, but they’re somehow in first. They’re brutal to watch, because they’re maddeningly inconsistent. I’m shocked to see them win games. The pitching is the same as the hitting: Bipolar. One day they’ll shutdown the Indians, and the next they’ll get trucked 13-2 by the Royals. Baez will swing at 3 consecutive pitches nowhere near the strike zone his first at bat, then take 2 fastballs down the pipe likes he’s never seen a baseball the next time up. Their most consistent hitter has been Jason “Sloth bat” Heyward. Statistically speaking they should be 10 games under .500, but here we are. If they’ve played this badly and are in first, things can only go up. Surely with their insane talent on offense the bats will eventually wake up…right?
