2010 N. L. Central Preview: Cubs Good, But Not Good Enough

March 30, 2010 by  

The 2008 edition of the Chicago Cubs had the best record in the National League (97-64) and should have repeated last season, but injuries, career-worst performances, and the plague that is known as Milton Bradley created a second-place ballclub.

The offense scuffled, Carlos Zambrano typically underperformed, and the bullpen was abysmal. All of these factors led to a very pedestrian 83-78 record and a second place finish. The Cubbies should be improved in 2010, but I don’t foresee the ballclub improving enough to overcome the Cardinals. That said, they could sneak in for the wild card.
