Series preview: Reds at Cubs, September 6

The Cubs were inexplicably parked yesterday for Labor Day, and I wasn’t enjoying it. But they are back in action this evening, with the first of three matches against the Reds at Wrigley Field. hAiden Wisinski is in town for the first time in the Major League Thursday’s game will be on YouTube.

Next, the Cubs will host the Giants for three games, before bouncing around the country: they’ll fly to New York for three games against the Mets, then fly back to Chicago for three games against the Rockies, and then return to the coast for three games. Against Marilyn, north for four against pirates, then back home again! That’s a lot of travel!

We go my line

The Chicago Cubs (56-78) They have lost eight of their last 10 matches, being two behind Cincinnati Reds (53-79) in the reverse order. While I always urge them to win, especially against the Cardinals and Brewers, it would probably be wise not to get too much of a win this week. The difference in lottery odds between fifth (10%) and eighth (3.9%) is the worst.

Hot or Not and Whom to Watch

Another good series was Seiya Suzuki That last 104 PA has a slash of .301/.375/.430 (128 wRC+). The power is still lagging, but his stroke rate is down to 15.4% during this stretch, which is excellent. He still does a lot of hard calling, too. It’s really a nice time for him. I like the modifications.

Ian Hap He also finished strong, with a slash of .284/.324/.549 (141 wRC+) since Aug. 8. The strength came back a long time ago, albeit at the cost of a few hits (25%). However, his overall season numbers are still in the All-Star range: 125 wRC+, 3.2 WAR, 15 hours, and 36 (!) doubles, which is tied for seventh in the MLB.

Nick Madrigal Production began to dwindle. He’s been getting excellent results since returning from IL on August 4 (100 PAs), still hitting average and hitting base, but the 326 is pretty low. He only reached 101 points in WRC+ during this period.

Either way, Hayden Wisinski He will be the player to watch this week. Wesneski, 24, is one of the Cubs’ best promotion opportunities (obtained at the Scott Effross trade), and He finally got his phone number.
