With the Chicago Cubs’ rotation struggling this season, it’s time to take a look at who the true ace of the staff is

The Chicago Cubs’ starting rotation was nothing short of spectacular in 2016. It was a rotation that included major league baseball’s ERA Championship, and featured two legitimate Cy Young candidates.

Many Cubs’ fans did not expect Kyle Hendricks to post a 2.13 ERA again in 2017, or for the Cubs’ top five starters to have an average ERA of 2.97, but what fans did expect was solid starting pitching from an experienced staff.
