Open Thread: Cubs vs. Nationals, Sunday 7/3

This isn't quite fair to Drese -- I've put his overall numbers here, but since the Nats acquired him he's 2-1 with a 2.84 ERA in three games (two starts).

This is how lucky the Nats are -- they pick up a guy who sucked for a team that really needs pitching, and he turns out great.

I note, however, that here's another guy who walks a fair number of people (more than he strikes out, anyway), and that if the Cub hitters would just exercise even a tiny bit of patience at the plate, maybe they could generate some offense.

Or not. It's up to them.
