I'm a moderate on this, but "the Cubs are just fine" seems like whistling through the graveyard to me.  It's pretty clear that the offense, as is, isn't working.  We were almost MLB leaders in getting shut out or scoring 1 run, and that was just a worse version of a big problem from last year.  The bullpen has been a dumpster fire going into the playoffs (including '16) every year, whether you want to blame the front office or the manager.

The Cubs are clearly a good team in a weak NL, but they have a lot of holes that can't simply be excused away by a few injuries and a rough schedule.
