Good second half performances can get the Cubs back to the postseason
With all the talent on the Cubs’ roster right now, there is no way this team finishes below .500. To get things back on-track, these key players need to start trending upward. A strong second half could erase all memory of this disappointing start to the season.
There’s no reason to think this won’t happen, either. The players we mentioned all have a history of strong second half performances. For this reason, these players need to lead the second half charge in 2017.
As the All-Star break looms, the Cubs find themselves in a position they did not expect to be in. Because of that, they will need to dig their way out of the hole they are in if they hope to repeat as World Series champions. These players above, as well as others on the Cubs’ roster will need to step up if they wish to succeed in the second half.
