I think that might end kubel speculation as well

If they keep it up at this pace, they could challenge for the AL Central title in a pretty weak division. If they were still tanking like they were earlier in the season, then I could see them making trades at this point.

You’re right, they have a lot of ground to cover. But the AL Central is pretty wide open like the NL Central and they could still make it. The same thing with the Reds who are pretty much in the same place as the Twins.

As for the Cubs, they’ve made a lot of bad decisions in the last century, this would just be another one.
