So, if the Cubs decide to make a run at it, who are they going after before the deadline? They need to add a starter to the rotation and a bat.Nice rebound to the Giants series. Davies was playing at his home park and smoked them. We saw what a not sick Jake can do for 5. SD just beat a blister finger and two rookies in the pen.
I feel pretty good if the Cubs match up against SD in a series. If things play out.
SD & LAD 1 game.
WC vs SFG
Cubs vs NYM
Mets have a solid 3 man rotation. Cubs most likely get to Marcus and Taijuan. deGromm it would be better to match Davies against him and hope for a A game. Play for the loss and set up Hendricks and Alozay vs Stroman and Walker. 4th starter Cubs have the advantage.
So it is doable.
Then you hope SDP beats both LAD and SFG. Cubs match them up
