John Lackey fits right into the middle of the Cubs’ rotation, following Jon Lester and Jake Arrieta. And at 38 years old, he is still churning out quality starts at an elite level.
Last season, Lackey started against the Cardinals four times and ripped off at least six innings with three runs allowed or fewer in all of them.
His finest of the four came in the middle of April when he blanked St. Louis for seven innings, striking out 11 to just one walk.
The offense hasn’t broken out yet early on but it’s kind of just a wait and see game with the Cubs’ lineup. There aren’t many mysteries. Kyle Schwarber has been great from the leadoff spot so far.
St. Louis Cardinals
Lance Lynn doesn’t exactly look like John Lackey from a mechanical standpoint but he just seems to fit right into the same mold as his opponent Wednesday night.
He’s the kind of steady performer that a lot of Cardinals fans take for granted at this point. But Lynn is better than most every third starter in the league and represents a consistent edge for the Red Birds.
I like the top three in the Cards’ lineup: Fowler, Diaz and Carpenter.
It reminds me a little bit of the 2013 Red Sox with Ellsbury, Victorino and Pedroia. Maybe St. Louis has a little less speed and a little more power.
