I'd be a liar to say I wouldn't be disappointed if the Cubs didn't make it past the NLDS, but I have to say this has been a pretty fun season.  That's 3 years in a row I can say that.

Good review by BP Wrigleyvilles Zack Moser of Cubs bullpen walk issues and expectations for 2018.

Zack appears to indicate that Cubs would resign Davis for 2018 which would surprise me.

I think they will work hard to re-sign Davis because there is no apparent alternative closer.

I think you're right.

Agree that Cubs shouldn’t expect anyone on roster other than Davis to close next season but not certain if Cubs are willing pay Davis as the club will need to replace 2 starters and secure a legitimate lead off threat.

Davis will most likely command a contract similar to Jensen or Chapman - 5 years $80-86 - and is the wrong side of 30, guessing that front office will assess ability to trade for a closer rather than pay Davis.

Have no issue with club upping payroll as the organization should be flush but I’ll be pleasantly surprised and somewhat relieved if Cubs resign Davis.
