The Chicago Cubs blasted the roster last summer but got off to a solid start in 2022. However, there are some fatal flaws that will bite the Cubs as the season progresses.
The Chicago Cubs were one of the more surprising teams to start the 2022 season. After the Cubs traded away Javier Báez, Kris Bryant and Anthony Rizzo last July, the Cubs were considered by many to be basement dwellers in the National League this season.
However, the Cubs have started the season with a winning record and sit at the top of the National League Central Division alongside their bitter rivals, the St. Louis Cardinals. Chicago’s quick start has many fans in the Windy City wondering if the Cubbies could make a run in the 2022 postseason.
What 3 fatal mistakes will come back to bite the Cubs?
The Cubs have a +9 run differential and are second in the NL for batting average (.277) and OPS (.803). There’s also rookie phenom Seiya Suzuki, who wowed the crowds at Wrigley Field and leads the league with 321 OPS+.
But before Chicago supporters get too excited, I think it’s fair to point out some of the team’s fatal mistakes. Let’s not forget that the Cubs were picked by an overwhelming majority of pundits, pundits and even their own fans to finish third or even fourth in the NL Central.
So while the celebrations are in full swing in Wrigleyville right now, it could all come crashing down if these three fatal mistakes are spotted as the 2022 season progresses.
