MLB rumors: Phillies among favorites to land Bryce Harper after 2018 season

The Phillies are looming as baseball's sleeping giant. Could they spend big to add Bryce Harper next winter?

The Cubs current rotation looks a lot like it did in 2016

The 2018 Cubs have a revamped, albeit not necessarily better, rotation than their World Series championship team.

Every World Series champion has their fair share of luck. The 2017 Astros found themselves at the brink against the Yankees, but won the toss-up ALCS Game Seven last October. The 2016 Cubs were no different, looking as close to defeat as one can get, before a rainstorm gave the team time to regroup and snatch victory in their own winner-take-all Game Seven.

Going into 2016, on paper, the Cubs had a solid, although not stellar rotation. With no true number one akin to a Clayton Kershaw, Madison Bumgarner, or Max Scherzer, the Cubs were a step behind their National League competitors from at least one perspective. Having four of their five starting pitchers on the wrong side of thirty, including a 37-year-old John Lackey, didnt help much either.
