Do they not understand how cold it usually is in Chicago this month?Fortunately, this series will be uninterrupted by rain, though it’s going to be quite chilly and windy this afternoon. It will be nicer Saturday and might be in the 70s by Sunday. That will help. Today’s forecast has a strong wind blowing in, though:Could be a good day for pitchers this afternoon.This article discusses the opposite-field approach the Cubs have taken this year, something you have likely noticed. The results have been positive:The Cubs rank second in the N.L. in runs (103) and runs per game (6.06).Here are today’s particulars.Cubs lineup:The Diamondbacks lineup was not available at posting time. Please check the BCB Twitter feed for the Diamondbacks lineup. Kyle Hendricks, RHP vs. Merrill Kelly, RHPJayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY SportsRick Scuteri-USA TODAY SportsKyle Hendricks has struggled this year. His last start was better, at least he’s cut down on the walks (only two in his last nine innings), and it seems as if he’s made some progress. He has yet to throw more than 95 pitches in any of his starts this season.His last start against the D-backs was a gem, September 17, 2018 at Chase Field. He threw eight shutout innings Albert Pujols Jersey , the shutout ruined in the ninth by a leadoff homer from A.J. Pollock, who isn’t a D-back anymore. He left after a two-out single by Paul Goldschmidt, who also isn’t on the D-backs anymore. Current D-backs are hitting a small sample size .200 (11-for-55) against him with no home runs and 13 strikeouts.So maybe this is the day Hendricks turns his season around. More on Kyle’s struggles in this Tribune article.Merrill Kelly — you haven’t heard of this guy even though he’s 30 years old. But you can bet Joe Maddon knows about him — he was drafted by the Rays in 2010 and pitched four years in their system from 2010-14, the last two in Triple-A. Tampa Bay let him go after the 2014 season and he pitched four years in Korea before signing a two-year, $5 million deal with the D-backs with option years for 2021 and 2022. He’s made three starts for the D-backs and two of them have been pretty good. Per Fangraphs his fastball averages about 92 and he uses it about half the time, splitting the rest between a curve, changeup and slider.He’s obviously never faced the Cubs or anyone on their active roster. But I bet Joe knows a lot about him.Today’s game is on NBC Sports Chicago. It’s also on MLB Network (outside the Cubs and D-backs market territories).Here is the complete MLB.com Mediacenter for today.MLB.com GamedayBaseball-reference.com game previewSB Nation game previewPlease visit our SB Nation Diamondbacks site AZ Snakepit. If you do go there to interact with D-backs fans, please be respectful, abide by their individual site rules and serve as a good representation of Cub fans in general and BCB in particular.The 2019 Game Thread procedure will be the same as the one used in previous years. Here’s how it works.You’ll find the game preview posted separately on the front page, two hours before game time (90 minutes for some early day games following night games).At the same time, a StoryStream containing the preview will also post on the front page. The First Pitch Thread and all the overflow threads will be published in that stream, as well as the recap. The recap will also live on the front page as a separate post, and at the time I write the recap I will rename the stream “Cubs vs. (Team) (Day of Week) Game Threads” so you can go back and find every thread related to that particular game.You will also be able to find the preview, First Pitch Thread, all the overflow threads and recap in the box marked “Chicago Cubs Game Threads” at the bottom of the front page (you can also find them in this section link). They will also appear in the game’s StoryStream as noted above.The First Pitch thread will post at five minutes before game time, then an overflow thread at one hour Mike Trout Jersey , two hours and 2:45 after the scheduled game time.Discuss amongst yourselves. He has always started slowly and gotten hot with the weather. How good can he end up with an early hot start?"WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections Houston Astros NewsGame ThreadsHouston Astros Minor LeaguesAstros Game DayPodcastsIs this the Season Alex Bregman Reaches Escape Velocity?New,5commentsHe has always started slowly and gotten hot with the weather. How good can he end up with an early hot start?CDTShareTweetShareShareIs this the Season Alex Bregman Reaches Escape Velocity?John Glaser-USA TODAY SportsEscape velocity: the speed required for an object to break out of the Earth’s gravitational pull in order travel freely in outer space. It is 11.7 Km/sec, several times faster than a bullet.Is this the year Alex Bregman goes into outer space?Here’s why he might. But first, some would say he made it into outer space last season. 5th in MVP voting, reaching the rarefied air of 50+ doubles, 30+ homers 100+ runs and RBI in the same season at age 24.Nonetheless, that is not escape velocity. That is merely high Earth orbit.The reason why he never achieved escape velocity is because every year of his career, including last year, his initial launch was too slow. Bregman has great career numbers, and for all but the most elite players he had what would be considered a career year last year, but always despite a terribly slow start.This year he is launching like a moon rocket is supposed to launch. This is the year Alex Bregman attains escape velocity.Let’s look at Bregman’s season starts in his previous three years. Here is his production in his first 11 games in his first 3 years in the Big Leagues.2016:-7 wRC+2017: 84 wRC+2018: 69 wRC+This year in his first 11 games Bregman has a 172 wRC+. And that includes his 1-15 slump to start the season. He is hitting 11 for his last 21 PA’s with four walks. His 0.6 fWAR is currently tied for fifth in the AL.These early slumps were not just for a dozen games either. His 2017 wRC+ in April was 85. In 2018 he came out a bit by the end of the month and managed a 116 for the period of March/April. But in both years Bregman’s April was by far his worst month. His 85 in 2017 was followed by months when he produced 121, 94, 169, 164, 101 May - September. In 2018 his 116 in April was followed by 142, 191 http://www.angelsfanproshop.com/authentic-zack-cozart-jersey , 172, 163, 163 May - September respectively.But baseball is a weird sport you might say, and maybe this year Bregman may start fast and finish slow. Of course, anything is possible, but I believe that Bregman has not yet hit his stride. He appears to still betrying to find his power stroke early on as in years past, but where he is currently ahead is in his bat on ball contact. If his career trends continue, he will find his power in the summer. But unlike years past, when that happens he will not be trying to overcome an early statistical deficit.In the last two seasons Bregs has hit only one home run in April, but 10 in May, 13 in June and 9 for each of the months July- September. His career ISO (isolated slugging) is .216, but in April before this year it averaged only .081. So far Bregman, even with his astronomical 172 wRC+, has done so with 10 singles, but only one home run and just two doubles. His ISO so far is only .135, way below career average Garrett Richards Jersey , but way above his normal April numbers.To this observer Bregman has avoided his normal early season slump by concentrating on contact rather than home runs.His line drive rate is 37.5%, compared to a career average of 23.1%. He is hitting to center 53.1% of the time, compared to a career average of 35%, and seems to be deliberately eschewing pulling the ball, doing so only 28.1% of the time, compared to a career average of 44.2% of the time. As he did last year, so far this year he continues the remarkable feat of walking as often as he strikes out, doing both 13.3% of PA’s.One more thing. Last year Bregman had 16 errors, 14 of them throwing errors.Following his elbow surgery last winter, he has had no errors so far this year.So in short, unlike years past, Alex Bregman is leaving the launch pad fast enough to achieve escape velocity. Expect acceleration to intensify as the second stage rocket of his home run power kicks in soon. This season he should break out of Earth orbit and make it to the Moon, or even Mars!But probably not to Planet Ruth, the undiscovered 10th planet.Looks like that one is reserved for Mike Trout, currently at 290 wRC+.(All statistics from Fangraphs 4-9-19 before the Tuesday game)
