As the pre-mortem begins with the Cubs collapse, I think the most obvious reason for it is gravity.  The team is finding its level.  Ross’ old-school meathead approach can be a problem - “rest is for losers, ride the guys the guys that got you here” has contributed to the mental and physical breakdowns for sure.  But mostly I think it’s just a more accurate picture of where this roster is.  Lots of work to be done to make it into a real contender next season.
