Next 20 Games Shape Cubs' Season

Bullpen BrianCorrespondent INovember 1, 2016

Tuesday marks the first of 20-games in 20 days for Chicago heading into the All Star break.

It’s a stretch that will certainly shape the rest of the season, and perhaps more importantly, the long term roster.

Win…and the Cubs’ current roster remains intact for another month. Lose..and you can start waiving good-byes to Lee, Lilly and potentially a slew of other regulars.

Try and wrap your head around this: the Cubs went 53-straight games without being shutout, a 12-0 drubbing on Sunday. That’s its longest stretch since a 65-game run in 2007. Never would’ve guessed with the offensive ineptitude we’ve seen this season!

–Chicago’s pitching staff has the third most quality starts in the NL…and fourth most in all of baseball. Carlos Silva leads the club with 10 QS.

–The Cubs have played 26 one-run games this season–the most in baseball. But, they’re just 10-16 in those contests.
