Similar to how that beer commercial talks about the difference being "drinkability," the main difference between the Cubs and the defending champion Phils is "hittability."

Yes, there are other differences between the two teams. The Phillies have much more team speed, for example. And they are very successful in picking the right time to steal.

In fact, their stolen base percentage is the best in the National League at 79 percent. The Cubs are last in the NL at just 60 percent.
