You're right.

Except for the MVP in the WS and Addison Russell and 3 out of their 5 starting pitchers they've been healthy as can be.

No way can you say they have been very healthy.

I do agree that should not be an excuse.

Basically have played shitty baseball except for Rizzo. Injuries are a shit excuse and why the fuck is KB tired as fuck at age 23 in his second full season. Starting to sound like a lot of fucked up excuses for a fucked up season so far.

The Cubs have had extremely minor injuries. Trying to blame their current record and performance on injuries is extremely lame.

Exactly. I don't know which "3 starters" have been injured according to CiJ. And Eddie Butler isn't great, but as the #5 starter he is 3-2 which is a better record than the team as a whole and better than every other starter.

And Russell hasn't been injured other than mentally, until he turned his ankle Saturday.

Injuries have been a non-issue. Period.

Chris in Joliet feels losing Brett Anderson really hurt them
