Whether you think the Cubs should try to win or lose every game for the rest of the year, there is little arguing that the Cubs have been losing a lot of games over the past week or so.
Right now the Cubs have the fifth worst record in the league and are currently a game and a half ahead (behind?) the Brewers for the fourth worst record, 6 and 6 and half ahead of the White Sox and Marlins respectively. The Astros have all but cemented being the worst team in the majors and have a 12.5 games worst then the Cubs. The Cubs are also only a single half game behind the Twins, and could slide down the draft board as well.
With 7 games left against the Brewers, four of which will be at Miller, and 3 left with Miami, what do you think the chances of the Cubs making it down (up?) to the fourth, third or even second worst record in the majors?
Personally I think the Cubs will fall behind Milwaukee, but finish with a better record then the Marlins and White Sox.
