It's been a heck of a good start to the 2020 season for the Cubs.

One might call it a historic start, in fact.

With Thursday's 4-2 win over the Brewers, the Cubs improved to 13-3, matching their best start in franchise history through 16 games with the 1907 team. The 1970 Cubs went 12-4 through 16 games, as did the 2016 championship team.

"You couldn't ask for a better group of men to be in a room with, especially going through a pandemic here and trying to complete a season," Cubs left fielder Kyle Schwarber said.

The 1907 Cubs didn't lose a fourth time until Game 20 (16-4), so the 2020 team needs a few more wins to secure the best 20-game start in team history (dating back to 1901).

For now, how about what this team's accomplished in the first quarter of this 60-game season?
