Things that need to change tonight:
- Rich Hill has the lowest run support (3.21 per start) in the majors
- The Rockies have not lost three games in a series at home all year
- The Cubs have not defeated Josh Fogg since he was a Pirate, on September 2, 2005
- BCB needs to be free of Scott Podsednik mentions. Whoops, that one just went by the boards.
|Today's Starting Pitchers|
Josh Fogg has faced the Cubs 19 times in his career, mostly with the Pirates, but not since that 2005 game, and overall is 6-7, 5.85 vs. the Cubs. It would be a good time for Derrek Lee to get going -- he hits Fogg well (.414/.438/.759, 4 doubles, 2 HR in 29 AB. Matt Murton, who has homered in consecutive games, has also homered once in 6 AB against Fogg, so I'd expect him in the starting lineup again tonight.
Remember, today's cable-only game starts an hour earlier than last night and is also at the Mediacenter.
