The good news for Chicago Cubs fans is that they're team might have had its best day of the season on Monday. For one, the Cubs were off, which promised them the rare opportunity of not losing. More importantly importantly, the North Siders inked 20-year old Cuban outfielder Jorge Soler to a nine-year deal, who will immediately become one of the top prospects in the organization.
While the future is starting to look brighter on the North Side, the present is still very bleak. For the second consecutive week, the Cubs landed at No. 29 in Comcast SportsNet Chicago's weekly MLB power rankings.
Only the San Diego Padres, who finished the week with just one more loss than the Cubs, are below the North Siders. The Texas Rangers top J.J Stankevitz and Toni Andracki's power rankings , followed by the Washington Nationals and Los Angeles Dodgers.
