Starting Pitching


Starting pitching a little unlucky?


Starters' ERA: 6.24, last in the NL

Starters' FIP: 4.80, 15th in the NL

Starters' xFIP: 3.90, 9th in the NL


Even though the Cubs' starters are giving up a near league average 18.6% LD rate, their BABIP is by far the league worst at .336. Additionally they have the league worst HR/FB ratio of 15.2%.


Early victim appears to be Dempster with 17.6% LD, .344 BABIP, 23.7% HR/FB. Garza's numbers are a little out of whack with a 27.7% LD, .414 BABIP, and no home runs allowed.


Hopefully some moderation in the unluckiness will be seen soon.
