Pre-Gamin’: Cubs at Reds (5:40 CT) – Lineups, Broadcast Info, Game Thread

Pre-Gamin'

Yu Darvish is going to have a good start – Yu Darvish is going to have a good start – Yu Darvish is going to have a good start – Yu Darvish is going to have a good start – Yu Darvish is going to have a good start – I will save a lot of money on my car insurance by switching to Geico – Yu Darvish is going to have a good start.

I’ve tried analytics. I’ve tried the eye test. I’ve tried, voodoo, magic, religion, and hot dogs from 7-11. But nothing is working, as I try to will Cubs righty Darvish to find that damn strike zone. After all, the Reds are essentially a bottom-10 walking team against right-handed pitching this year – he should be able to get out of this one with fewer walks than he has in any start the rest of the season, right?

Start 1: 7 walks
Start 2: 4 walks
Start 3: 0 walks
Start 4: 4 Walks
Start 5: 3 walks
Start 6: 4 Walks
Start 7: 5 Walks
Start 8: 6 walks

RIGHT?! Go Cubs.
