I doubt that Happ could still be considered "highly coveted".

Was thinking the same thing.

With Voit on the IL, look for the NYY to trade for Jose Abreu today

The Cubs current record of 57-51 means the season has reached the ⅔ point.  That puts them on track to finish the season with 85 wins.   At the halfway mark, that number was 88.

22 of the 25 board members who made a preseason prediction thought the Cubs would win more than 85 games.  JRs prognostication of 86 wins is the closest.

Im revising my guess of 95 down to 82.

br, unfortunately I think we're looking pretty good in the predictions race.   I think 1-4 or 2-3 finishes make you the winner.  I need them to go 3-2 or 4-1, and method wins it if they win the final five.

83 wins, third place, no playoffs. Bullpen is a dumpster fire, starting pitching inconsistent, and hitting continues to be less than the sum of their parts for the third year in a row.

I really hope I'm wrong.

And sadly it looks like you had the season in general figured out from the start.

No matter how many games they win this weekend, I think "bullpen is a dumpster fire, starting pitching inconsistent, and hitting continues to be less than the sum of their parts" is a winning prediction.

David Ross, you shake him up and turn him upside down, wake him up and have him look around, at least a uniform will be his, when the Chicago Cubs come to town.
