Open Thread: Cubs vs. Pirates, Sunday 9/4

New, 7 comments

All of the big events for me and my family this weekend are over, with a great sense of joy and accomplishment.

Thus, I can sit and actually watch today's game...

Today's Starting Pitchers
Jerome Williams
J. Williams
Cubs
vs. Kip Wells
K. Wells
Pirates
4-7 W-L 7-14
5.20 ERA 4.66
51 SO 117
34 BB 77
12 HR 19

... ugh. What an ugly pitching matchup this is. Williams was brutal in his last start, retiring the side in the first inning 1-2-3 and then pretty much throwing batting practice till he was yanked.

The Cubs pounded Wells at Wrigley Field on July 17, but his lifetime record against the Cubs is 3-2 with a 3.02 ERA in 13 career starts. This year, it's 0-2, 5.82, so who knows.

Discuss amongst yourselves.
