Cubs’ status line

BAT|PITCH|Rs|Ra|W|L|UR|LR|TeamID
48.2 89.7 297 156 39 16 3.1 1.0 CHN

BAT down a bit, PITCH up, W-L up another +4, and even UR up.  Cubs are cruising into the playoffs right now.  Top Cubbies.

+002+ 4.43 Jake_Arrieta_CHN PITCH
+013+ 3.11 Jon_Lester_CHN PITCH
+016+ 2.98 Jason_Hammel_CHN PITCH
+021+ 2.67 Kris_Bryant_CHN 3B-LF

+037+ 2.27 John_Lackey_CHN PITCH
+041+ 2.21 Anthony_Rizzo_CHN 1B
+052+ 1.97 Kyle_Hendricks_CHN PITCH

Even after a somewhat bad outing yesterday Arrieta maintains #2 behind this guy

+001+ 5.46 Clayton_Kershaw_LAN PITCH

Kershaw will be tough to catch. No Cubbies in bottom 200.

May as well do the White Sox.

-19.3 25.7 229 219 29 28 2.1 0.5 CHA

This is a 0.500 team. PITCH makes up for bad BAT. Here are White Sox in top 100.

+015+ 3.04 Chris_Sale_CHA PITCH
+020+ 2.69 Jose_Quintana_CHA PITCH
+038+ 2.21 Todd_Frazier_CHA 3B

Same three guys except both Sale and Quintana are faltering and no one is around to pick up the slack. The White Sox are heading towards the cellar. Here are bottom 200 White Sox.

-040- -1.83 Adam_Eaton_CHA RF
-051- -1.66 John_Danks_CHA PITCH
-109- -1.18 Alex_Avila_CHA CR
-152- -0.97 Brett_Lawrie_CHA 2B

Eaton still sports a very high WAR so no one in the White Sox front office realizes what a problem he has become for their lineup. Whatever. Maybe the Cubs will face these guys in the World Series.

BOS has #1 BAT squad followed by SLN. SLN has the horses to make a run for it after All Star break if they can turn their pitching around.
