wrigley field from right bleachersTravis Wood’s second half hasn’t gone quite as well as his first half, but, you know, sample sizes and all that. At least he’s still a beast with the bat.

On the other side is Hyun-Jin Ryu, the Korean pitcher on whom the Cubs bid, but lost out (by a fair bit) to the Dodgers. He has been quite good.
