Cubs 21 games into the season

As promised, I was going to do a progress check on the Cubs at 21 games. For the most part, the Cubs have come together. There are problems that have been there from the beginning, KB....YD.... and although most players have stepped up the the plate, Baez and Heyward should not be carrying the team on offense.

Cubs 1 week Progress

Every season I do three check point evaluations of the Cubs. First week, end of July, and the end of the season. This is the worst first week for the Cubs I have seen in quite a while. Actually can't remember when the cubs went 1 win and 6 losses. The Cubs pitching is not pretty
