The Twins, Rays and Astros all above .500? Dallas Keuchel starting the All-Star Game for the American League? The White Sox and Red Sox in last place of their respective divisions?

The 25-year-old righty is 0-1 with a 5.15 ERA, but that doesn't tell the whole story.
How will the Cubs play with expectations?
