The Cubs are awful and I’m guessing most of you don’t want to spend much time reading another breakdown of just how bad things have gotten. With that in mind, I wanted to have a little fun with a very simple test. Below you’ll find recent stat lines from two different Cubs players and your job is to name them without any further clues. Easy enough, right?
Player A (125 PAs): .303/.376/.560, 5 HR, 16 RBI, 11.2 BB%, 18.4 K%, 152 wRC+
Player B (123 PAs): .205/.276/.286, 1 HR, 9 RBI, 8.1 BB%, 22.8 K%, 61 wRC+
One of these is probably a little too easy, but not everyone seems to agree.
