Chicago Cubs 2016 NL Central Championship Gear

miami marlins home run sculptureDown to Miami the Cubs go for a little sun, a little night life, a little beach time, and, oh, some baseball.

Young Marlins starter Jose Urena had a great start to the year at AAA, but he’s struggled in his few big league starts. Perhaps the 14.9% K rate and 8.1% BB rate at AAA should have been a warning sign that the 1.21 ERA wasn’t going to hold up.

Generally, though, Urena’s game: pitch to contact, work around the zone, hope they don’t hit it too hard. The Cubs have a slightly reworked lineup tonight to great the young righty.
