The Chicago Cubs have had an eventful 2016 season so far. The season’s first quarter had its fair share of ups and downs and the Cubs’ fans are enjoying the topsyturvy ride. The Cubs started the 2016 campaign as the hottest team in the MLB; they hit the ground running and got off to their best start since the 1907 season. Helped by the efforts of players like Jake Arrieta and Dexter Fowler, the team established a significant lead in the National League’s Central Division and looked to be cruising to the playoffs.
However, the team met with several speed bumps, mostly in the form of injuries. Jason Heyward and Kyle Schawber were both sidelined and squad’s depth and the team’s mettle were tested during the opening weeks of the season. The team’s results were poor in the latter half of the opening quarter, but their good start means that they are still in a very good position.
As it is, the Cubs have finished the first quarter with a 29-13 record, which is currently the best in the MLB. The team leads their division with a six game lead over the second placed Pittsburgh Pirates and statistics are suggesting that they will be the only team to cross the 100 win mark this year.
If the Cubs can maintain this form till the end of the season, they can very well win their first pennant since 1945 and reach the World Series once again. Only time will tell if that does actually happen.
Chicago Cubs vs. Philadelphia Phillies Series Preview
Wrigley Field and Citizens Bank Park will soon host a showdown between the rivals, Chicago Cubs and Philadelphia Phillies. Both the sides are looking to clinch the series and it promises to be an epic clash. Fans are rushing for their Chicago Cubs vs. Philadelphia Phillies tickets as they don’t want to miss the live action.
Chicago Cubs have entered the season with a young side and have behind them a successful year as they made it to the 2015 National League Championship Series. And that was before they added to their roster high-end talent like Jason Heyward, John Lackey and Ben Zobrist. The team is solid all around the diamond and is now deeper in almost all the areas. Boasting of the 4th best farm system in the league, the Cubs are poised for some stellar wins this year.
For the Philadelphia Phillies it’s an all new ball game. Their last big win came in 2011 and since then they have been on the losing side. Starting from the top of the hierarchy, a complete rebuild has taken place and a new club president and general manager have been appointed. Veterans Jonathan Papelbon and Cole Hamels have been traded for younger prospects and the team is still active in revamping the roster. While it may take some time for the changes to show their effects, the Phillies are headed in the right direction. It will be interesting to see how these two young sides battle in out on the field.
