The Chicago Cubs are not having the best time right now. They have lost a good amount of games over the past two weeks and there are a lot of reasons for that. The best hitters on the team are ice cold and some of the starters haven’t been as good as they were to start the season. With that said, their bullpen has been the biggest issue all season long. It is always capped off by lousy performances by Craig Kimbrel.
He was at one time one of the greatest closers who ever lived and that earned him a pretty nice contract with the Cubs. What the Cubs failed to realize was that he was starting to really fall off at the end of his Boston Red Sox career and he carried that negative trend over with the Cubs. He has been bad since his first appearance with the club and it has gotten even worse this year.
