Chicago Cubs: Final thoughts
While Montgomery is not the flashiest option, he does provide the necessary end of the rotation (and swing man-style) depth the Cubs so desperately need, making him the most viable option for the Cubs in the postseason.
The Cubs are in a unique experience entering the postseason because they have a handful of guys with solidified playoff experience, as well as contingency arms who can still produce at a high level.
The make-up of this rotation could and probably will by all accounts change over the next couple of days. First, the Cubs need to handle their business at home against Colorado. If they can do that, however, this rotation can compete with any in the National League. If the bats can find fire and the arms can stay steady, expect the Cubs to make another run at the World Series.
