Cubs snap shot

Oops never published on the 29th of July. Doing so now, although these numbers have shifted a lot.

Every year at this time (since 2013) I do a snap shot of the Cubs at the end of July. The obvious Stars are Baez, Almora, and Rizzo. Bryant has been injured much of the season. The power hitters are Baez, Rizzo, and Schwarber. Schwarber happens to have the most walks and a .364 OBP, 3rd highest RBIs - so really should probably be ranked higher.

The Cubs sit in 1st place a game and half above the Brewers. Starting pitching has been their weekest link all season, but I would say there is somewhere between 87% and 95% chance they will make the playoffs again this year.
