Cubs really do play in the "friendly confines"

The Cubs play in Wrigley Field, often known by the nickname "The Friendly Confines".

Looking at today's statistics on win-loss (as of Friday July 19, 2019), that's certainly true.

The Cubs have won 67% of their home games, but only 40% of their road games, a difference of 27 points -- a larger difference than any other team.  The Dodgers are next with a difference of 22 points.

Put another way, if only road games counted the Cubs would be tied for last in their division, instead of 2.5 games in first place.
