The NL Central has not been getting a lot of attention but it is really competitive right now. The Cubs are seeking to get to their expected position but St. Louis is one of the teams in the way. It is always a good series when these two get together.
Getting former Colorado pitchers is not usually a thing but Tyler Chatwood has been good for the Cubs. His ERA is down but the walks still remain a problem. He has been much sharper on the road than at home with a limited sample size.
St. Louis Cardinals
St. Louis has been getting really good pitching but they need more from their lineup. Dexter Fowler and Matt Carpenter have really struggled so far this season – both players are hitting under .200 – creating big holes in the lineup
Luke Weaver’s first three starts were really good but the three that followed after that were not so much. It is hard to pinpoint why, it might simply be a young pitcher still trying to find his way in the league.
