  • he's 8th in innings pitched in baseball this year and has thrown over 200 innings in 7 of the last 8 seasons. He finished 21st in MLB in IP, 9th in the NL . Plus, going to your bullpen has a much different meaning in baseball the last few years anyway...

    You're looking for a one percentage increase in performance from a guy already outperforming the league by 25-30%. Might as well ask be asking Anthony Rizzo to steal more bases.

  • In honor of playing Dusty tomorrow he's just clogging the bases.

  • ...or he might have more innings under his belt to be very effective in his starts before going to the pen...among other things.

  • Wilson Contreras today for Iowa: 0-for-0 with 2 runs scored. 4 BB.

  • Ross has a 0.79 ERA and 0.97 WHIP. He has a pretty low K rate but he has a ridiculously low hard hit % and no HRS off him yet.

  • Small man gonna small.

  • Wow.

  • Imagine if Schwarber was healthy.

  • J.Zimmermann with a 695 at the moment, Arrieta is second at 495. Ross apparently hasn't qualified yet with just 4 starts and 22 IP fwiw.

  • Cubs Foe Tomorrow -

    The Cubs are facing young Joe Ross tomorrow night for the Nats.

    He has an ERA+ of 542. NOT a typo.

    I don't think I have seen that recently...

  • http://fivethirtyeight.com/features/the-cubs-start-is-even-more-dominant...

    as if you hadn't noticed, but the Cubs are dominating baseball at the moment at a level that has not been seen too often in baseball history.

  • if only he could throw a ball to first base, he might have a negative ERA and the Cubs would be undefeated.

  • Thanks for the extensive scouting report.

  • How about that Lester. What a beast. A nifty 1.58 ERA/227 ERA+

  • Sean Rodriguez still a douche

    Strop quick pitches him and so he jaws with Strop and Cubs dugout.

    Get use to it Pauly Shore, Buccos are done

  • was the last out, bottom 6th more about Adam Warren being good or about the Pirates struggling this series?

    and on cue, Len and JD discuss:
    JD: It appears that Adam Warren is becoming Joe Maddon's favorite club.
    Len: You mean favorite Cub?
    JD: No like a favorite golf club.
    Len: Like Billie Baroo (then does Ted Knight/Judge Smails impersonation from Caddyshack)
