8/12 Pitching matchups

Sunday’s loss to the Reds dropped the Cubs to 44-69, and they now are a season-low 25 games under .500 for the first time since ending the ’06 season 66-96. Chicago has lost 11 of its last 12 games. On Monday, the Cubs open a three-game series against the Astros at Wrigley Field. Here are the pitching matchups:

Monday: RHP Jeff Samardzija (7-10, 4.21) vs. RHP Armando Galarraga (0-2, 4.70)

Tuesday: RHP Chris Volstad (0-8, 6.94) vs. RHP Lucas Harrell (9-8, 3.97)

Wednesday: RHP Justin Germano (1-2, 4.26) vs. RHP Bud Norris (5-9, 4.93)

Will the cubs lose more than 100 this year, the mark of a truly awful team? I bet they lose 103.

Maybe give away tickets with a Big Mac and fries.

The race is on between the Astros and Cubs for a better draft pick.
