The talking heads SAID that they would be 3rd behind the Brewers and us, and they've come out the gate 1-5. What did the writers know that I didn't?

Their plight is fun, but certainly not likely to last.

They should have very legitimate concerns about their bullpen and rotation, but the offense will mostly be what it was. Bryant's shoulder is still a question mark, and they still have Heyward. If Rizzo, Schwarber and Baez don't improve or slip, then they may legit suck.

Maybe PECOTA was on to something.

This could be a bad bump in a couple of months.

They made no major moves in the offseason except for Descalso. And their sink/swim guys like Baez will finally see the downside to their hitting profile, IMO. Glad they suck right now.

It gripes me that they got my boy, Dirty Dan :cry:

As a Bulls fan I watch the "Sports Talk Live" show from Chicago where unlike the sickening St. Louis excuse making FSMW suck-up guys, they tell it like it is. "The Bulls suck, the White Sox suck, and the Cubs are sucking". They all agree that Joe Maddon's job is on thin ice, and further he might even be fired mid-season! That really baffles me.

What about the other half of baseball? Pitching was seen as their problem right?

losing 5 of 6 seems perfectly normal for any team over the course of the season.

That said, their bullpen has been terrible during this stretch.

it's not like the nl central as a whole is loaded with great pitching.
