The Cubs have difficult decisions to make over the next month and a half.

“To bring that here and to bring the discipline and to bring the incredible strategy involved, it’s just a great event and hopefully a lot of the Chinese people would enjoy it,” Brady said.

Brady’s Patriots were scheduled to play in China during the 2007 preseason in Cheap High Quality Soccer Jerseys an exhibition game against the Seattle Seahawks dubbed the China Bowl. The game was cancelled by the NFL so that it could focus instead on building its presence in London. Now London games have become a fixture of the regular season.

Truth No. 2. The Cubs have difficult decisions to make over the next month and a half.

Again, the goal for this franchise is no longer just to win the division or get to the playoffs. The goal is to collect World Series titles. So while the team, as currently constructed, is certainly capable of doing getting into October, you can bet Theo Epstein and the rest of his front-office gurus are asking themselves if this team, as currently constructed, is capable of winning the World Series.

It’s doubtful they like the answer. Look at the rotation. Last year’s starters had a combined 2.96 ERA. This year, the starters have produced a 4.60 ERA. Yikes. Veteran John Lackey looked good in his last start, but he needed those six innings of one-run ball to push his season ERA under 5.00; the 38-year-old allowed at least four earned runs in seven of his 14 starts, and his FIP is 5.54 (after a 3.81 last year, btw). Is he a playoff starter?
