Pre-Gamin’: Cubs at Cardinals (7:15 CT) – Lineups, Broadcast Info, Game Thread

Chicago Cubs

Tonight, the Cubs and Cardinals will square off for just the fourth time this season, with the Cubs having taken each of the first three at Wrigley Field back at the beginning of May.

And on the mound for both teams is a free agent starting pitcher signed before the 2018 season – Miles Mikolas for the Cardinals and Yu Darvish for the Cubs. Obviously, Mikolas has looked like the better signing overall, especially after a big season in 2018 (2.83 ERA through 200+ IP). But the gap has narrowed considerably this year … mostly because Darvish is alive and technically pitching and Mikolas has been pretty bad (4.76 ERA, 4.85 FIP) – i.e. not because Darvish got his groove back.

Speaking of which, please get your groove back, Darvish. Luis and I would love something positive to discuss on Outside the Ivy Tonight – airing after postgame with Kap and Dejesus. GO CUBS.
