Coming into 2012, Gavin Floyd had the lowest ERA in the history on Interleague play. He's been hit pretty hard this year, most recently by the Astros & Cardinals. He does own pretty good numbers lifetime vs. the Cubs but is 0-3 to show for it.

So really, I have no idea what's gonna happen in this one.

Oh wait, Randy Wells is going to get molliwopped.

Does Randy Wells have like a 19.52 ERA and I missed it?

He's got a lovely .68 K/BB ratio.

Also a 6.38 ERA, 1.64 WHIP & .315 BAA vs. CHW in 3 starts.

No, but he's progressively getting worse as a pitcher so there's that.

Only 30,000 or so at the game last night, lowest attended game in Cubs-Sox history. Looking online there are plenty of seats available for this one too. Sad that I'm too lazy to travel to the South Side

Just talking to my dad about Rizzo's upcoming arrival. He's bummed because this will squeeze campana to the bench and "Campana makes things happen."

Be nice if Wells could hit his spots as well as he did on that first pitch to AJ all the time.

So a guy coming off knee surgery, specifically a catcher, playing the most stressful position on the field, should be expected to start every day straight off the DL? That's some sound logic right there. :roll:
