Open Thread: Cubs vs. Pirates, Sunday 7/17

New, comments

There's not much more to be said than this:

Playoff contenders take three of four (at least) from lesser teams like the Pirates.

Time to step up and start winning consistently.

Wells has a good lifetime record against the Cubs (3-1, 2.43 ERA, eight no-decisions in 12 starts), but gave up six hits and four walks in six innings the last time he pitched against the Cubs in April. (Yes, the Cubs won the game.)

Discuss amongst yourselves.
