4/25 Cubs vs. Garza
Who has the edge when players face a former teammate? The Cubs will find out Friday when they have to deal with Matt Garza, now starting for the Brewers.
“Obviously, these guys have played alongside him and know him and they’re preparing to face him like they do against any other pitcher,” manager Rick Renteria said. “You’d be surprised — sometimes when you have a guy on the same team and you think you know exactly what they’re about until you face them and then you realize you really didn’t have as good an idea as you thought you did.”
Garza has never faced the Cubs in his career.
