The Chicago Cubs continue to fight to reclaim the top spot in the NL Central division. Miguel Montero’s recent comments on Jake Arrieta show the true problem within this Cubs team.
The Chicago Cubs allowed the Washington Nationals to steal seven bases in their 6-1 loss on Tuesday night. The seven stolen bases set a record for the most stolen bases in a game in Nationals team history.
The Cubs’ run production ranks 16th in baseball. As a team, they are struggling to hit for average. They rank 29th in batting average (.239). If the Cubs can’t find a spark from their offense, they’ll struggle to reach the World Series again in 2017.
