Cubs starting pitching since Smyly’s last start and Wicks getting called up (excluding the bullpen game in the Reds double header) - 19 games, 30 ER/116 innings, 2.33 ERA, 11 quality starts, 13-6 team record.

Assad’s start tonight will be the fourth full time through the rotation since going to the Steele, Hendricks, Taillon, Assad, Wicks rotation.

Smyly, by the way, has been pretty good since being moved to the pen. Small sample size, but he has a 3.38 ERA as a reliever this year. He could be the left hander in the pen they’ve been looking for all year.

Still, it was the best bunt I’ve seen this year. Not saying much, but still.
Haha, that's fair. Fantastic bunt.

That said, I'm as anti-bunt as it comes. The only time I want to see a bunt is if it's for a base hit.

Lost 2 out of 3 to a minor league team. 10 baserunners in the first 4 innings should get you more than 3 runs.
So frustrating. you just know when you squander opportunities in that ballpark it’s gonna come back to bite you.
for whatever reason we stink against the bad teams. We’ll do better against Arizona.

Huge Starting Pitching advantage for us this weekend..............with Steele, Hendricks and Wicks. Unless Gallen goes on short rest, we miss both him and Kelly. On paper, we clearly go 3-0. Now all we have to do is execute.

Hendricks goes tonight which makes me nervous. With his velocity he has to have perfect location or gets hit hard. And with our offense sputtering that can’t happen. Go Cubbies.

As nervous as I get when Hendricks is pitching, he's been one of the Cubs' most consistent pitchers. Not flashy, just solid.
