Pre-Gamin’: Cubs at Mets (6:10 CT) – Lineups, Broadcast Info, Game Thread


The Cubs have a big night on tap, with a game in New York against the Mets, and a few key draft picks to select.

The team faces Jacob deGrom and his flowing ‘do, and although his ERA is a bit ugly this year, it’s almost entirely attributable to the same kind of bloated HR/FB ratio a lot of pitchers are facing this season. Does that mean he – and, say, John Lackey? – is especially susceptible to the new reality of the fly ball revolution? Or is his 20.0% HR/FB ratio a mere fluke that will begin course-correcting as soon as tonight?

We shall see. We shall also see if Lackey can get through the first inning without allowing a run. If he does so, I will do a celebratory dance. If he does not, I will flog myself with 10 pushups per run.
