The Minnesota Twins (32-22, 2nd in AL Central) and Chicago Cubs (31-21, 1st in NL Central) wrap up a three-game series at Wrigley Field Sunday. First pitch is at 7:08 p.m. ET.
Can the Cubs get to that level of competitiveness? One of the problems with discussing the topic is some have a bit of a conflict of interest, so to speak. For instance, some fans are Javier Baez fans enough that anything hindering Baez from being a Cub for his entire career is fiercely battled.
Jason Heyward leads the Cubs in OPS through last night’s game. The Cubs have already won a World Series during his time in Chicago and the Cubs have the third-best record in the National League. They are nearly certain to win the Central and have a chance to finish with the second-best record on the league in 2020.
