Cubs outfielder Jason Heyward pointed out the sad, but obvious. Heyward told reporters that although his team has the “best record” in the National League, they “haven’t clinched” it yet. He spoke on the fact that the other teams in the league are playing well, especially their neighbors to the North, the Brewers. He finished by saying “its time to pay respect to how good these other teams have been playing baseball”. At the time of reporting, the Brewers were only half a game behind the Cubs.
