*The Cubs rank in the middle of the pack in MLB with a .255 batting average – yet they’re third in on-base percentage. The North Siders lead baseball in walks and hit batters.
*Since the start of divisional play in 1969, only four teams have led the NL in both runs per game and ERA over a full season. The Cubs currently lead the NL in both categories.

*Kris Bryant and Anthony Rizzo have remarkably similar numbers in 2016.
