The Bucs are sliding but they can make a bit of a statement if they win some games at Wrigley over the weekend. Even though they are playing good ball it seems unlikely this bunch is going to push for competing. It has be internal which means more from some of their would be stars.
Rookie Nick Kingham has now made 5 starts but none have lived up to the promise of the first – 7IP, 1 hit. The peripheral numbers are all pretty but you have to wonder if there is now a book out on him. He has faced the Cubs before, 3ER over 5+. Nothing special.
The Cubs are getting there, now they are just a smidge behind the Brewers and everyone in the division, in the NL, has to be worried they are hitting their stride. Suprising Javier Baez has yet to drop off. He leads the team in homers and RBI and steals. Even though he will never take a walk.
Jon Lester is coming off his best start of the season, a 2 hitter against the Mets. His ERA is exactly what is was when he won 19 games for the Cubs a couple of seasons ago and there is no reason he can’t keep it up. His home numbers are awesome.

Free Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Chicago Cubs MLB Prediction:
The Cubbies will be very solid favourites in this one. If you are going to bet against them you are betting on Nick Kingham. I am not sure you want to do that.
