After an early playoff exit, what’s next for the Chicago Cubs?
The Chicago Cubs had plenty of opportunities to get the job done on Friday afternoon. But they were never able to capitalize. After a game one loss at home the Miami Marlins, the Cubs seemed poised to win game two, extending the series to a third game.
The story for the Cubs has been the same every year since 2016: Get to the playoffs, hope to win, only to find no signs of life, and eventually get eliminated at the hands of an opponent the team probably should have handled.
