Top Ten interesting Stats for the Cubs through the first month of baseball

Ten interesting stats after the first full month of baseball (Thanks Emilio)

Emilio Bonifacio has had 5 games where he had multiple hits and his batting average actually went down (including a game where he had 5 hits and the batting average went DOWN)

Emilio Bonifacio has more SB than any Cub last year (10)

Though not on All-star ballot, Emilio Bonifacio’s 34 hits are one less than the combined total of 4 other Cubs that are on the ballot(Sweeney, Barney, Valbuena, Ruggiano)

Cubs Catchers have thrown out only 2 of 28 base stealers, and if memory serves me correct, one of those was Minnie Minoso

Though it had pre-game festivities, cupcakes, and an awesome jersey giveaway, the 100th Anniversary game had the lowest paid attendance of all the games in the AZ Diamondbacks series

I have as many saves as Jose Veras but at $4M less, For the Cubs, they have 2 Saves and 4 Blown Saves – nice (But let’s not start calling for Carlos to return just yet)

Of the 43 Starting Pitchers that qualify for ERA title and who have an ERA of 3.00 or below, 38 of them have 2 or more victories and only 1 starter does not have any victories, our very own Shark (with the 11th best ERA of 1.98)

Olt has more RBIs (11) than hits (10)

Carlos Villanueva is on pace to lose 31 games

Travis Wood has as many hits in one game (2 in 3 ABs) as the rest of the Cubs pitchers have had for the entire season (2 in 48 ABs)
