Weekly Rankings: July 11

Staff

The Cubs continue to slide down our rankings after going 2-8 in their last ten games. Jake Arrieta has struggled. In his last four starts he has a 6.75 ERA and has a BB/9 of 5.06.

The Dodgers on the other hand have managed to stay afloat with their ace on the DL until sometime after the All-Star Break. It’s no secret that they’ll need Kershaw to truly contend, but it’s a good sign that they’re playing good baseball without him.

And the Minnesota Twins are 5-2 in their last seven games. For a team that’s basically as bad as can be, it deserves a mention.
