Yowzers. The Chicago Cubs will finish the worst season EVER at Wrigley Field. It’s only 60 games, but it still counts.
The Chicago Cubs will finish off the worst season ever in the history of Wrigley Field. Can you believe that? But hey? They haven’t had a single case of the COVID-19 virus–for the players, not the coaches. And they are the only team to not had an issue. So, bravo to them. But for the players? That a different story.
It’s 2020, and it’s been a tough year for all. But you are paid to play the game–and that’s what you do. And to be honest, they’re making too much money for the numbers they’re putting up. The Cubs will put up the lowest average in their ballparks 106-history. Let that sink in.

Where do they turn? It’s a 60 game season, plus the postseason. Still, it’s crazy how it can affect the playoffs. We’ve got eight left. And the players that have had the roughest time? Check this out.
The Cubs’ Anthony Rizzo (.189, four home runs, 11 RBI), Kris Bryant (,197, one home run, two RBI), Javier Baez (.172, two home runs, seven RBI) and Kyle Schwarber (.176, five home runs, 11 RBI). The ‘core four’ of the group.
"“It was just about us four, or us five, trying to make adjustments for the team, not for our numbers. Baez said. “We’re still going to struggle or not get the results, but at least we’re trying. We’re working on something.” h/t Paul Sullivan, Chicago Tribune"
Also, Rizzo pointed out that Ian Happ, Jason Heyward and Willson Contreras we’re ‘carrying’ them. And that’s a good thing because it shows how capable they are of showing up in the postseason.
"“Knowing when our whole lineup comes together, we’re really scary,” Rizzo said."
Batters one through nine are deadly when they come together. But as of now, they’re still out of sorts. One day, though. They’ll be savage when it comes to hitting. Maybe this year? You never know.
