With every week that the Cubs look up in the standings they make you wonder. Does this team have super team potential. They have a chance to knock Pittsburgh down a peg in this series but they are not dominating on the road. They are nowhere near their ceiling yet.
Jon Lester is pitching great right now, back to back to back starts with just one run allowed – and you have to go back to April to find a game where he has allowed more than two runs. He might not rack up the Ks like he did when he was younger but he knows how to pitch.
Pittsburgh might have dropped to fourth place but as long as they are above .500 they are still kind of in it. I am just not sure how well they can stay at that level. Nobody is really having a monster season so this team might be getting some great cluster luck.
They have no starter listed as this is being written and it is not as if they have a ton of great options to turn to. The offense has been the group carrying the club so far so there is room for the pitching to improve.
