The Cubs have continued to play well, just not exceptionally well, while the Brewers do. Because of Milwaukee’s emergence, Chicago is either a co-favorite or a slight second option in the NL Central, but neither the Cubs nor Brewers are considered the major favorite yet.
Jose Quintana has been madly inconsistent, which was never a problem once he broke onto the scene as a potential front-line starter on the other side of Chicago.
He does have a sub-2.00 ERA in two career starts against the Mets, though. With Yu Darvish out, he, along with all of the other starters, are expected to do just a little bit more.
New York Mets
I expected Seth Lugo to start one of the Mets’ doubleheader games last week but he did not. However, he is expected to make his first start of the year in this game.
He’s been excellent out of the bullpen, about as good as you would expect a talented starter like himself to be when given a shorter assignment like getting just three outs at a time.
The Mets lost Steven Matz to a finger injury on Tuesday. It could be a blister, which would just add him to the long line of pitchers who are out or have been out this season with blister problems. It feels like things are starting to get away from the Mets here in late-May.

Free Chicago Cubs vs. New York Mets MLB Prediction: under.
I’m tempted to take the Mets here because of the very real possibility Quintana labors through another five innings. But New York’s offense is nothing Q can’t go at and attack. I do like Lugo, though.
