Tonight's game features one of the larger pitching mismatches of the season.
This worries the heck out of me.

Even worse, Z is 5-0 with a 2.80 ERA in his last six starts, and 5-3, 2.14 in his career against the Reds.
And worse than that, Milton's lifetime ERA against the Cubs is even higher than his season ERA this year -- a Ruthian 7.14 -- and that includes the near no-hitter he threw last year. Twelve Cub homers in 40 career innings, and if he allows one more he'll accomplish the anti-feat of allowing forty homers in a season for the second straight year. If he allows TWO more, he'll be tied for ninth place on the all-time HR allowed list, and with four more allowed, he'd be tied for sixth.
We are surely doomed.
Discus amongst yourselves.
