With a 13-5 start to the 2020 season and sitting atop the MLB, will the Chicago Cubs be able to continue their fantastic start to the season?

While the Chicago Cubs win game after game, most of the fans are wondering will this great start to have a fall-off at any point. The Cubs starters have shown their worth and have come out and dominated almost every game.

From Kyle Hendricks’ great opening day start to Alec Mills coming in on short notice to pitch against the Brewers, the starters have been rolling. But then the iffy bullpen comes into play, sometimes they perform, and sometimes they worry the fans watching the game.

Going into the end of the series against the Brewers, some problems have arisen, including Tyler Chatwood with back tightness and Kris Bryant with a sore wrist.

Tyler Chatwood should come back to the mound on Monday in the doubleheader against the St. Louis Cardinals, and for now, Cubs’ manager David Ross is playing it safe with Kris Bryant to make sure he comes back at 100%. As injuries always happen in the season, this is something they can easily continue winning while waiting for both of their returns.

The bats also continue to be the main factor of our winning games. With 12 quality starts from our starting rotation, scoring 3-4 runs a game regularly can win the game without a sweat. But all good things come to an end, or do they? The pitching rotation is showing that they can perform game in and game out this season with little struggle shown.

Next. Cubs have a trio of starters – all of whom can be called an ace. dark

And once again, this team is being looked past as a top contender for the World Series. This week being the first week this season that we have broken into the top three of the MLB’s power rankings.

With the historic hot start, they are looking down over the rest of the NL Central. Will this magic run continue into the late games of the season, or will they tire out and end up in a fight to be in the playoffs?

Go Cubs Go!
