FanPost Friday: Have we learned anything from the first 22 games of the season?

We love making assumptions on small sample sizes!

MLB: Chicago Cubs at Cleveland Indians Ken Blaze-USA TODAY Sports

I think it’s safe to say that no Cubs fan pictured the team languishing in fourth place in the NL Central when the season started. The team is hovering over the .500 mark, and as of this writing they are 12-10 on the season. Not the worst Cubs start in history, to be sure, but not where anyone wanted the team to be.

It’s early of course, and things have a habit of turning around so quickly we can easily forget a sluggish start. This time a month from now, if everyone stays healthy, there’s no reason to believe the team can’t climb back on top.

But the goal of this week’s FanPost Friday prompt is to take a look at the small number of games the team has played and see what takeaways we can glean from them. Perhaps you’ve noticed something consistent in the pitching rotation either for better or worse. Maybe you think the lineup is the culprit.

Whatever it is you’ve seen shake out in the first 22 games of 2018, tell us what lessons you’ve learned.

Head on over to the FanPost section and select “New FanPost” on the left, then go ahead and get as vocal and opinionated about all the good, the bad, and the downright ugly stuff you’ve seen shake out this year and what the team needs to learn from it.

As always, have fun!
