Cubs A Sub-.500 Team?

By bullpenbrian - February 25, 2010 - 2:04 am Leave a comment.

I’m not picking the Cubs to win the NL Central. I’m not picking them to win the Wild Card, either.

But I know this team is better than the 79-83 record predicted by Baseball Prospectus, which has the Cubs finishing nine games behind St. Louis and in second place in the Central.

Chicago’s starting pitching is too good. Its lineup is too good. And, the Cubs play the Pirates way too many times to end the season below .500!
