Chicago suffered a blow this week with catcher Willson Contreras being lost for a few weeks. They sill have more than enough offense but he was an important contributor. Makes you wonder if they might have Kyle Schwarber catch a little, especially with Nick Castellanos available for the outfield.
In five starts since the All-Star break Yu Darvis has looked much better. One was at home against Cincinnati too where he held the Reds to tjust two hits and no runs over 6 innings. If he is getting into form the Cubs are even more the favourite in the NL Central. Craig Kimbrel has been all or nothing since he got there.
Big series for Cincinnati this weekend. Win and they might get into the race in Central/Wild Card, lose and they are done. I like what I am seeing from the offense of late. They need Jose Peraza to step up. He has been a real disappointment this season. Now he is playing some 2B for them.
This will be the second start for trade acquisition Trevor Bauer, the first did not go great. He has the stuff to neutralize Chicago but might be feeling a little something in his first home start. Cincinnati is missing a couple of key bullpen arms due to suspension.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- CHC are 8-20 in their last 28 road games.
