While this is largely the same team that put together a World Series run, they have struggled closing in on some of the elite teams in the league. The Cubs still have a pretty strong core around themselves, with Kris Bryant and Anthony Rizzo. Javier Baez has also become one of the top names in the game, and is an exciting player to watch. Adding Jason Kipnis and Steven Souza in the offseason give the Cubs a couple of players to fill the needs they have. If Yu Darvish can find his form, and the rest of the staff holds down the fort, this can be a good rotation. Kyle Hendricks has limited production against him, but we have seen Jon Lester and Jose Quintana begin to struggle. If the backend of the rotation can’t find their worth, the Cubs do not have much to make up for it.
