The Cubs’ record of 26-49 is not only the worst in baseball this year, but also the third-worst after 75 games in the franchise’s sad history.

The Cubs have struggled in nearly every area, ranking near the bottom of the NL in both runs scored and runs allowed. Houston has — with the exception of Chicago — the worst road record in the majors at 9-25.
