What has been the stat of the year thus far for the Cubs?

The Cubs never cease to amaze me. And just to prove this point, here are some mind boggling stats thus far 44 games into the season. Which one is your favorite? (Most of these are not good)

- Player with the Most Stolen Bases on the Team - Soriano (5)

- Pitchers have as many RBIs in the month of May as any position player (13)

- Matt Garza, I repeat, Matt Garza has driven in as many RBIs in 5 innings (2) as Alfonso Soriano did in the month of April

- 4 Starters have an ERA of 3.86 or under, a combined WHIP of 1.08 yet their combined record is 11-14

- For the 28 quality starts, starters ERA is 1.98, yet the team record in those games is 11-17

- Luis Valbuena, DDJ and Nate Schierholz all have more home runs than Soriano

- The Cubs have only 1 game with paid attendance over 40k

- Travis Wood's 9 Quality Starts in nine appearances is making some T-shirt vendors wish they still had the master copy of the "We've got Wood" T-shirt

- Cubs have as many blown saves (10) as saves (10)

- Tied for the league lead in Wild Pitches (24)

- Shark and Jackson are on pace to lose 20 games

- Luis Valbuena has the most walks (17) but that is tied for 62nd in MLB

- The Cubs only have 3 hits with RISP all year long (at least it feels like that has been the case)

I am sure there are others that are noteworthy not on the list above. Please share!
