"The Cubs invested a lot in their 2023 roster, pushing the payroll to its highest since 2019, making big commitments to Swanson and Taillon, getting Stringer’s message out there. It hasn’t gone quite to expectations, with the team under .500, but to go back on that now would be a tough message to a fan base that has been alienated at all turns since 2016. The Cubs shouldn’t be sellers, and if anything, they should be soft buyers. The Cubs can still win the NL Central."
