7/20 Cubs lineup

Ryan Dempster is in the Cubs’ lineup Friday for Game 1 of a three-game series against the Cardinals. Dempster enters with a 33-inning scoreless innings streak dating to June 5. That’s tied for the seventh-longest single-season scoreless innings streak by a Cubs pitcher in the last 104 years dating to 1908. With a 30 1/3 scoreless innings stretch as a reliever in 2005-06 and his current 33-inning scoreless streak as a starter, Dempster is the only pitcher in modern history (since 1900) to record 30-inning scoreless stretches as both a starter and a reliever (Elias Sports Bureau). Dempster’s 33-inning streak is the longest in the Majors since Cliff Lee’s 34-inning stretch last season.

Here’s Friday’s lineup:

Really going to miss Dempster. He is a really great pitcher and has been
a great Cub. Like losing a good friend. I wish him the best if he really
has to go.

well at least you finally came to terms with it WHITE

Sigh!

He is a nice guy, but that is baseball.
I guess we all have our fav.’s. I felt bad when the Phil’s signed their AAA mgr..
