The Cubs are running away with the NL East Division title, currently sitting 16 games ahead of the second place St. Louis Cardinals. The offense is a force, arguably the best in the league with the deepest lineup.
The same could be said for the rotation, with 5 legitimate stud starters and a bullpen that features both Aroldis Chapman and Hector Rondon.
John Lackey is one of these elite starters, putting together a great season with a 3.36 ERA and 1.02 WHIP, which are incredible numbers yet he sit just 4th amongst their rotation in ERA and 3rd in WHIP.
His record currently sits at 9-7 as he looks to pick up the double digit win here in Texas.
Jose Altuve is the best hitter in baseball this season, and there’s very little debate about it. His .342 average sits atop the NL and his .404 OBP sits top-10, plus he’s added 22 homers, 92 BI, 96 Runs and 27 steals.
He is the complete package and on his way to the Silver Slugger award.
Collin McHugh hasn’t reproduced his excellent 2014 season, where he registered a 2.73 ERA and 1.02 WHIP, instead his stats have dropped in each of the last two seasons since then.
This year his ERA sits at 4.96 and WHIP at 1.51, though with a solid 149 strikeouts in 152.1 innings.
