Why do we suck?

Written by , Posted in General

Comparing the boxes of the starters for both teams provides just one one facet of a million-faceted gem that is the Crown Jewel of the Cubbies’ 2006 Crown of Thorns.

Batting averages of starting Brewers vs. starting Cubs:

MIL CHI
.286 .248
.270 .241
.263 .327
.274 .249
.290 .230
.261 .277
.263 .290
.263 .226

ERA of appearing pitchers:

MIL CHI
3.10 4.94
3.51 5.89
n/a 4.46

    Well, one of the reasons we suck is because like you did, our manager and GM look at Batting Averages instead of On-Base Percentage.

    God knows we don't want guys clogging up the basepaths.
