Well, it’s been a whirlwind 24 games straight for the 1st place Cubs, and it certainly wasn’t a smooth 3 weeks, but they finish the first half of the season with the second best record in baseball, largest division lead at 7 games, and the entire starting infield for the National League in Tuesday’s All Star Game. Lin’s worry list is still inhabited by one Jake Arrieta, though he might be a victim of his own success with how unhittable we’re used to seeing him be in the last full calendar year. Thankfully, the Cubs began the year on an absolute tear and have proven to be a deep team following injuries to Dexter Fowler, Kyle Schwarber and Jason Heyward. We’ll talk again to Len on Friday as second half action kicks off and this historic Cubs season begins to reach its crescendo.
