The Chicago Cubs suffered a 2-1 loss on Sunday to the Pittsburgh Pirates, but things are going quite well for the northsiders so far in 2016. The team’s 27-9 record is at least four games better than anyone else in MLB, and they hold an eight-game lead in the NL Central over the Pirates and St. Louis Cardinals.

The Cubs have an off day on Monday, before a short trip to Milwaukee for a three-game series against the Brewers. So on Sunday night, they went out to have some fun. That included some bar karaoke!

We’ll start with Anthony Rizzo, Dexter Fowler, Jon Lester, and John Lackey singing Darius Rucker’s “Wagon Wheel”:

Then we have Rizzo and Fowler doing Notorious B.I.G.’s “Big Poppa”:

And then… Rizzo, Fowler, and Travis Wood taking on some NSYNC “Tearin’ up my heart”:

Fowler (2.5; 1st ) and Rizzo (1.6; 9th) have been top-10 in the NL in WAR per Fangraphs, and it appears their KAR (Karaoke Above Replacement) is also top-notch.
