Also, the Nationals have a tough final stretch with 3 against the Cardinals and Indians and 5 against the Phillies. A lot of teams fighting for their playoff lives.NL Central race is about to get real interesting. Cards in 1st, Cubs 2 back, Brewers 3 back. Brewers have the easiest remaining schedule while the Cards have the most difficult. Cubs and Cards play each other 7 times. Really anybody’s division.
Not really? Set aside Gleyber, because pretty much every team could always use elite talent up the middle, but this Cubs team isn't lacking for sluggers.traded away the wrong guys (Gleyber, Eloy, and Soler)
Isn't it shocking that the guy who hasn't played for four months has a better approach at the plate than the "sluggers" and "stars" on this team?Not really? Set aside Gleyber, because pretty much every team could always use elite talent up the middle, but this Cubs team isn't lacking for sluggers.
Frankly, I've been shocked at Zobrist coming back after 4 months and - in several games - having the best ABs in the lineup. I think we all may have discounted how much they missed him.
