The Chicago Cubs is the worst hitting team in baseball, but this shouldn’t be a surprise. It seems obvious to me that the Cubs’ front office does not properly evaluate hitting talent, every player on their team is a home run hitter. When Schwarber left they went and got a literal hitting duplicate, Joc Pederson, as a replacement. Nico Horner was the best hitter in spring training and they sent him back to the minors in favor of another home run hitter.

I can’t blame the manager, and I can’t really blame the players, they are who they area. The problem rests entirely with the front office. Really, one hit wonders. How lucky we were in 2016!
