Jose Quintana is on the Cubs. I still can’t believe it.

The 2016 Cubs were full of chemistry, is that’s what’s missing from 2017?
Before suffering the wrist injury in late May, Zobrist was his usual self. Since then? Far from it.
OMG THE CUBS SHOULD SELL!!! … this is not that discussion. We’re going to calmly talk about what selling would look like if it happened.
The Cubs schedule projects to be one of the easiest in the National League … but is that right?
You might expect some positive regression, but Baez has to put in some serious work to get back on track.
There’s gotta be an obvious underlying statistical issue, right? Given the fall-off? What if there isn’t?
Lester’s never had a start quite like that – though he did have a similarly bad one last year at this time. Will he be fine in the second half?
It’s truly remarkable just how much has gone wrong for the Cubs on an individual player level.
Jake Arrieta can look so good for this inning, and so bad for that inning. Changing coming for the rest of the rotation.
It’s still so incredible to think about how successful Happ has been in such a short time.
I tend to think it’s better to bat him lower in the order for now, but Joe Maddon has no qualms about where Schwarber hits.
Jon Lester gave up a bunch of runs yesterday, but he really wasn’t that bad. Which is not an excuse for the Cubs.
Go Cubs and Go America.
The Cubs continue to tread water, but at least they’re not sinking.
After a mechanical adjustment in late May, Arrieta is sporting a 3.35 ERA.
The start to the 22-year-old’s career has been explosive and powerful. I could be talking about Ian Happ or Kyle Schwarber.
Anthony Rizzo hit the highest home run of the year.
This is not where any of us expected the Cubs to be at the midway point. But, no, I don’t see them seriously considering selling right now.
