How about we stop writing about the Cubs and start writing more about the Brewers?
The Cubs’ batting woes were unforeseen- but their pitching woes were completely predictable given the workload of the starters into the WS, and given that the core- Lester, Lackey and Arrietta were all over 30 (only young one = Hendricks).

Even with Quintana and possibly Sonny Gray I think they’re in the Nats/Dbacks tier, behind the Astros and the Dodgers who both are on pace to win 109/110 games
