People keep saying this, but I just don't see it. The Cubs in name recognition might have the most talented team in the division, but I simply don't think these are the same players as their names suggest. Milton Bradley is a train wreck. Geovany Soto forgot how to hit already. Derrek Lee, up until the last week or two, could not catch up to a fastball. Aramis Ramirez might still be pretty good, but he's still injured.
I'll grant you this: their pitching, when healthy, is solid. Their bullpen is pretty good (up until Kevin Gregg who I simply don't care for). When Rich Harden and Carlos Zambrano are on, they're tough. Overall though, I'm just not seeing this uber-talented team everyone talks about. I think people are still in the mindset these guys are in their early to mid 2000's bodies.
