The Chicago Cubs have the best record in Major League Baseball at 24-6. They are showing no signs of letting up after dismantling the Pirates and Nationals in back-to-back series. They went 7-0 last week against two of the best teams in the National League by outscoring them 45-21.
There’s no doubt that the Cubs should lead the week 5 ESPN Power Rankings again, for the sixth straight week. The Cubs are number one in batting with 184 runs and are slashing .263/.368/.441. They also lead the Majors in pitching with a 2.48 ERA.
