Oh, and just in case you forgot, he also served as the catalyst for the greatest inning of Cubs baseball in the past century.
In the 2017 postseason, the Cubs offense mirrored Schwarber’s, barely surviving the series against the Nationals. Both the team and Schwarber hardly mustered any resistance in the National League Championship Series. He went 3-for-17 between the two series, although he took a trio of walks.
As you can see from Schwarber’s production the last three postseasons, the offense as a whole basically mirrors what he is able to do.
As Schwarber goes, so goes the rest of the offense. To paraphrase what Joe Maddon once famously said about Dexter Fowler and the offense, if Schwarber goes, we go. Pure and simple, this lineup is a monster if Kyle Schwarber is striking fear into opposing pitcher’s hearts.
