Chicago Cubs: Solving the bullpen problem

It would be awfully hard to look at one single problem the Chicago Cubs and say if the team fixes that, it’ll be on its way. The offense can be inconsistent and not always score runs. As of Monday, the team is batting .231 as a unit, good enough for 25th best in MLB. The starting pitching has a 3.79 ERA, 15th best in the game, but that’s mostly because of the performances of...
