    It really shouldn't. Pitcher wins are the most meaningless stat in all of sports. It doesn't represent dominance at all. Thankfully most of the voters started ignoring that a while ago.

    No they don't. Its been pretty obviously dismissed for several seasons now. Pitcher wins are dead.

    4-0 now huh. Right now this team has two chances left to even make the playoffs:
    1. Beat up pn the last place Buckos. or
    2. Hope the Reds, Cards, and Brewers manage to beat up on themselves and manage to each lose 2 or 3 of the 8 games they play each other this coming week.

    Yu is now at 2.22 2.23 2.66 Still an amazing line. But I think he's probably cooked.

    Are there really believers still that the Cubs offense has just run into bad luck for the last 3 weeks?

    They clearly are, but they played a pretty close series vs STL this weekend.

    They lost 4 of 5, but 3 of them were 1 run defeats in which STL came back in the later innings.

    lol. I'll bet everything I own the Cubs make the playoffs easily. Hell they'd have to be absolutely awful the rest of the way to even lose the division. The offense has been **** for a while. This is 2 losses against a good team after a 5 game win streak. Get off your ledge. Now they'll probably get kicked out of the playoffs earlyish because they have no pitching but hot takes like yours are just dumb as ****.

    Iím not sure if anyone ever believed it was ďjust bad luck,Ē but I donít believe Bryant, Rizzo, Schwarber, and BŠez are all horrible hitters moving forward now.

    Bad luck is part of it. Short term bad processes are part of it. Itís unfortunate that the offensive core are all collectively underachieving significantly this year. Itís impressive that they will win this division anyway.

    Cubs pitching in 8th in ERA and 9th in FIP
    Their offense is 18th in HR, 28th in K%, 21st in wRC+

    Its pretty clear that pitching is actually carrying us this season. The pitching is pretty good.

    lf they lose i think itll be more because of lack of offense more then because of Darvish and Hendricks in the first round
