The Cubs have found themselves a really skilled pitcher, there is no doubt about that. Although commenting on somebody’s success just by looking at their debut performance might not be considered the best thing to do — but it can be mutually agreed that it is an indication at least. With his cunning fastball and curveball tactics, Jose Quintana racked up a total of 12 strikeouts in just 7 innings when the Cubs played against the Orioles. With Quintana’s performance, the Cubs swept the Orioles in a legendary 8-0 win.
The Cubs are on a win streak. They are undefeated for the past three matches they played. At 46-45, the Cubs are a threatening opponent now.
Atlanta Braves stand at a .500 (50% win rate). The Braves are delivering a good performance and that implies that the trades can’t be too abrupt or heavy. But still, no matter how good the lineup is, the team needs a few modifications and the management of the team knows it better.
The Atlanta Braves sent out a strong message when they swept the Arizona Diamondbacks out in the very same venue their face off with the Chicago Cubs is scheduled in close to the trade deadline.
With both teams strong, we can only anticipate.
