Luke brought this up a few weeks ago and I think we may have found an answer.

 

In 1998, the Cubs featured 5 starting pitchers that bore the brunt of the workload.  However, only 1 of those 5 featured an ERA+ of over 98 (two others were at 90 and 1 was 82 across a combined 120 starts).

 

Who was the only Cub starting pitcher (with more than 10 starts) to feature an ERA+ over 100.

Also, bonus trivia - was the team's overal ERA+ above or below 100?

I remember Luke talking about Kerry Wood a couple weeks back. So I'll guess Kerry Wood for the starter above over 100. He was a Rookie that year.

Yup.
