    导出博客文章Editors note: After a busy first half of the 2016 Major League Baseball season,
    Joe Peta is here to take a look at both the good and bad for all 30 teams, along
    with projecting the second half from a betting perspective. This is the entry
    for the Chicago Cubs.Records reflect all games played through Sunday. All
    statistics are through each teams 81st game. Season-to-date pricing adds the
    implied win probability from the money line of each teams first 81 games and
    converts it to 162 games.Chicago CubsVegas projection: 93.5 wins My projection:
    96 wins Current record/pace: 53-35 (98-win pace) Season-to-date pricing: 88.5
    winsWhats gone right: For the first 67 games of the season, the 47-20 Cubs were
    being compared to the best baseball teams ever.

    .J. -- New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz will miss the rest of the
    season after having surgery on his left knee. OXON HILL, Md. -- The big-spending
    Boston Red Sox could be far more conservative this offseason because of
    baseballs new luxury tax rules.President of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski
    said Monday that the new collective bargaining agreements stricter penalties for
    spending above a certain payroll threshold could factor in to the teams plans.
    His top priority is to find an eighth-inning reliever and also add another bat,
    but dont expect him to throw money around to make it happen.The Red Sox had $209
    million committed to player salaries last season, fourth in the majors.
    Dombrowski didnt guarantee Boston would be under the $195 million mark for 2017
    but would like to try to avoid the extra penalties in place moving forward for
    going over.There are definitely reasons why you dont want to go above,
    Dombrowski said. Some of them involve now for the first time differences in
    draft choices and sacrifices of money to sign players and that type of the
    thing. ... I think were going to have a good club either way.Dombrowski, who
    announced that the club picked up the 2018 option on manager John Farrells
    contract, was known for making big deals during his time running the Detroit
    Tigers. At the winter meetings he has heard a lot of names but less interest in
    young players like Mookie Betts, Xander Bogaerts and Jackie Bradley Jr. now
    after winning the AL East than a year ago when Boston finished in last place.If
    the right trade came along, Dombrowski would listen, but he said hes not going
    to make a deal just for the sake of it. He hasnt closed the door on bringing
    back Brad Ziegler or Koji Uehara but would like to get a setup man any way we
    could find one -- either through trade or free agency.Mark Melancon agreeing to
    a $62 million, four-year deal with the San Francisco Giants set the market for
    closers like Kenley Jansen and Aroldis Chapman. Dombrowski would like for his
    eighth-inning acquisition to have closing experienced but said its not a
    necessity.The first order of business was committing to Farrell, who helped the
    Red Sox win the World Series in 2013 and led them back to the playoffs last
    season. Dombrowski inherited Farrell whenn he took the job in the summer of
    2015, and this is a sign of confidence in the veteran manager.ddddddddddddWe had
    a conversation a little bit yesterday and it got a little bit personal where he
    walks in, hes inheriting a manager and a chemo plan, said Farrell, who was
    diagnosed with lymphoma more than a year ago.AL Cy Young Award winner Rick
    Porcello likes that Farrell exudes calm and consistency.Boston can be a tough
    city to play in and when you hit those lows throughout the course of a season,
    where you lose a couple of games, it gets frustrating and it gets emotional, and
    you need to have a leader that can provide that stability and allow you to go
    out there and just focus on performing and winning ballgames on a day-to-day
    basis, Porcello said. John does a really good job of keeping us away from those
    distractions and just focusing on playing on the field.While Dombrowski implied
    that hed be surprised if the Red Sox didnt bring in another hitter this winter,
    Farrell pointed to the return of third baseman Pablo Sandoval as a major
    factor.As I look at the lineup for next year, one of the keys for us is going to
    be Panda, Farrell said. And thats not to put it all on him, but heres a
    left-handed bat that is a proven guy and has every opportunity to make a major
    impact on our team next year.Dombrowski described Sandovals conditioning as very
    good and said the 30-year-olds shoulder was good to go. Boston wants Sandoval at
    third base because the club would like to rotate the designated hitter spot
    around after the retirement of David Ortiz.That means the Red Sox arent itching
    to spend big money on a player who is primarily a designated hitter.Were in a
    new era, Farrell said. I love the fact that weve got the flexibility that we do
    with so much roster versatility. ... The more we can rotate guys through, get
    them off their feet on occasion would lend you to believe that we would keep
    guys a little bit more fresh deeper into the month of October.---AP Baseball
