Open Thread: Cubs vs. Pirates, Friday 7/15

New, comments

I'm opening today's discussion thread very early since I'm going to be on a plane to New York most of the morning.

Today's Starting Pitchers
Kerry Wood
K. Wood
Cubs
vs. Josh Fogg
J. Fogg
Pirates
2-2 W-L 4-4
4.80 ERA 4.30
52 SO 54
20 BB 29
8 HR 16

Fogg has a pretty bad lifetime record vs. the Cubs (4-5 with a 5.79 ERA in 15 starts), though he pitched well against the Cubs on May 17 in Pittsburgh, allowing 2 runs in 6.2 IP in a game the Cubs won 4-3. Those 16 HR allowed should make Cub hitters lick their lips, though.

Kerry Wood was very good in his last outing against the Marlins. Time to keep this sort of thing up on a consistent basis.

Discuss amongst yourselves.

UPDATE [2005-7-15 12:21:17 by Al]: ... to a note I left in the Comment section, here is the official press release announcing that Adam Greenberg has been DL'd, replaced by Ben Grieve.
