The Cubs seem to be quietly cruising towards a division title. They even made an investment in offense getting Jose Martinez from Tampa. They are primed.
They are familiar with the slugger from his time in St. Louis and he will give the lineup that much more length.
With Yu Darvish pitching great this season the Cubs are strong in the rotation – they are fourth in quality starts.
Alec Mill is not the best of the bunch but he is not embarrassing himself at the back of the rotation. He has to watch the long balls though. He has not seen Pittsburgh this season.
The bullpen could probably be a little stronger but Jeremy Jeffress has finally harnessed that big arm and looks good as the closer.
The deadline came and went and not much changed for the Pirates. Of course they were not going to be buyers but they also didn’t really have much other teams wanted.
This is one of the most listless offenses and that is not going to change. Lowest OPS in the league.
JT Brubaker is just a rookie. He has proven he can miss some bats but needs to reduce the walks to have more success.
This is a classic situation where they are just going to let him pitch. No reason to hold back and protect him.

You have to fade Pittsburgh. The question is whether you go money line or run line. Either way, making a case for the Bucs is just hard to do…and harder still against good teams like Chicago. Even though Mills is no stud.
