The Cubs are good but I still wait for them to find another gear and take their position atop the NL Central. The offense has been good but they have been playing without Jason Heyward who has had a concussion. Truthfully that more affects the defense.
Tyler Chatwood has always walked a lot of guys and his walk rate has jumped since coming to Chicago. That means he is always playing with fire. On the road he has more walks than strikeouts on the season.
Atlanta continues to surprise. Never in a million years would I have guessed they could have an offense like this – second in scoring and Top 10 in the major categories. Ozzie Albies weights 165 and is tied for the MLB lead in homers with 13.
Brandon McCarthy is lucky with that 4-2 record as his peripheral stats do not support that. His ERA is high and at some point the support runs out, that is what we have seen in his last couple of starts where the Braves scored a combined 5 runs.
