9/4 Cubs vs. Brewers

On Friday, the Cubs face the Brewers, kicking off a stretch in which they will play 20 of 23 games against NL Central foes. Here are the pitching matchups:

Friday: LHP Chris Rusin (2-3, 2.74) vs. RHP Kyle Lohse (9-8, 3.32)
Saturday: RHP Jake Arrieta (2-1, 3.77) vs. RHP Johnny Hellweg (0-3, 10.97)
Sunday: LHP Travis Wood (8-11, 3.17) vs. RHP Yovani Gallardo (10-9, 4.31)


I know its late in the season,call ups,this and that,but i think this has to be the first time in along time that all three era’s of the starting pitchers is lower than the oppo.This has to be a good thing right!

lol, Depends on what Draft Pick you want next June.

An astute observation Kenly. Do you think the Cubs will either knock Hellweg all the way back to A ball with an even more obscene era than 10.97? Or will the Cubs anemic offense rise to the occasion and cut the young man’s era in half? 50/50 I’d say depending on if the rare offense shows up or the usual no offense shows up…. But I like what you pointed out indeed!

Just a comment,we all know were we wish the cubbies were actually drafting!

I know Kenly and your right, very rare the Cubs starters have lower ERA’s than opposing starters.
