    I like to think the recent sweep earned the Dodgers that "k" in their logo. Good job, boys.

    So after that pitiful Cubs series where we lost ground, we actually end the week up a game. Not bad.

    Pence down. Giants playing decent teams. We play the Braves and Reds
    The plan is working
    :rubhands:

    Suicide watch for the weekend series in SF though. :(

    The sample size for Trayce is growing.

    CHI in 2015 - 135 plate appearances, .295/.363/.533, .896 OPS, 5 HRs, 26 strikeouts, 13 walks, 33 hits
    LAD in 2016 - 138 plate appearances, .279/.362/.566, .928 OPS, 9 HRs, 30 strikeouts, 16 walks, 34 hits

    wRC+ was 144 last year with CHI and it was 151 as of yesterday for LAD, subject to change tomorrow.
    Deals have been made of Trayce's ability to hit RHP,

    2015 vs. RHP - 77 plate appearances, .269/.364/.448, .811 OPS, 3 HRs, 17 strikouts, 10 walks, 18 hits
    2016 vs. RHP - 88 plate appearances, .273/.364/.571, .935 OPS, 6 HRs, 18 strikeouts, 11 walks, 21 hits

    Now, for Montas who's impressed @ AA/AAA thus far in his rehab.
    5 games, 8 innings, 31 batters faced, 1.12ERA, 6 hits, 1 HR, 1 ER, 2 walks, 12 Ks
    Sometimes plan B is the best plan.

    Hoping Bolsinger/UrĂ­as can give us some good starts. That'll be huge for this series if we want a shot at sweeping.

    Bummed about the pitching matchup tomorrow. And throughout the series, honestly. The offense needs to show up.

    License Plate giveaway tomorrow. So I'm sure we'll get at least 20k.

    agree on the offense
    hopefully yesterday was a sign of things to come and not just an aberration
    our starters need to go 5-6 innings and hold the rocks to 2-3 runs (or less)
    have a feeling urias might fare better in front of the hometown fans, especially if a lot of mexican fans show up to support him
    no racist

    If Bolsinger has a 3rd straight outing where he only gives up a couple runs over 5 innings we should start seeing some respeck on the man's name.
    Definitely time to score some runs and give him a lead to work with

    his outings have been somewhat misleading too
    the last three times he's given up a hr and the lead iirc
    makes it look worse than it is
    but his era is around 4 over that time
    not great, but certainly good enough if the offense does their job

    And pitching on the same staff as the baseball god himself doesn't help either

    If Bolsinger pitched for the Cubs he'd be 5-0 right now.

    Not ripping Bolsinger. He does his job. Just prefer watching someone else. Sucks that Wood (no homo) was starting to pitch so well and got hurt.

    Adding to Trayce's numbers, forgot these,
    With CHI in 2015 - .341 BABIP
    With LAD in 2016 - .301 BABIP
    .301 obviously more sustainable, it was .293 before yesterday's game.

    The one area I see where he truly needs to improve offensively is on the road,
    CHI/away 2015 - 68 plate appearances, .206/.265/.397, .662 OPS, 15 strikeouts, 5 walks
    LAD/away 2016 - 70 plate appearances, .219/.286/.438, .723 OPS, 17 strikeouts, 6 walks
    Gotta do better here, @SFG later this week would be a start, wash the road sins away

    Meh, only reason the Cubs are as good as they are is because they are getting hopefully unsustainable production from all 5 starters.
