Well, the Cubs did it. Back-to-back NL Central champs, baby. With one more win, it will also be three 90-win seasons in a row. Thank you, Theo.
Looking ahead to the playoffs, how do the Cubs stack up to the rest of the National League? I used this tool on Baseball-Reference to rank the production of each playoff team at each position using Wins Above Replacement. I'll break it down by league so the graph is a little easier to read. Tomorrow, I'll look at pitchers.
Baseball is here! And more importantly, that means the over/under game is back. It seems as though everyone is an expert this time of year. Somehow we convince ourselves that we are better at predicting baseball outcomes than everyone else. Well, AFITB is putting that to the test for the third year in a row. Think you know more about baseball than us? You probably do. But go ahead and prove it anyway.
Baseball is simply the best.
Can the playoffs get even better? Yes, if you play this game with us.
