Arguably the best player in baseball, Mike Trout, and his LA Angels will take on the #1 team in baseball at Wrigley Field.
Los Angeles Angels
Mike Trout might be sending out an SOS signal pretty quick, as the Angels’ have no real offensive protection for the slugger.
Albert Pujols is still hitting and actually has 86 RBI on the year and is tied with Trout at 21 homers for the team lead. But aside from the aging Albert, there is a dearth of lineup support either now, or on the way.
Jered Weaver used to be a legitimate ace in his prime.
Unfortunately, his fastball now sits in the mid-80’s on a good day, and has dipped into the 70’s on occasion…this means I can throw as hard as Jered Weaver does, not ideal.
Weaver now owns a 5.11 ERA and 1.45 WHIP on the year, with just 64 strikeouts in 123.1 innings.
If there was any holes on the Cubs team, they’ve done a great job of filling them through trades at the deadline.
Added are one of the top relief men in the game in Aroldis Chapman, the new closer in Chi-Town.
Joe Smith was also added to boost the pen, while Mike Montgomery was added but hasn’t had a good start to his Cubs career.
Jason Hammel is a nice luxury to have as a 5th starter, considering his 3.07 ERA and 1.10 WHIP on the year. He’s been great since joining the Cubs, with a sub-4.00 ERA and sub-1.20 WHIP in his time in Chicago.
If he can go deep into the 6th or 7th, the backend is as solid as they come to lock it down and garner Hammel win number-12.
