Cubs even the series

Once my A’s are out of it, I root for the team playing against the Giants, followed by the team with the lowest payroll. To that end, I’m quite happy that Cleveland has made the World Series. They had the lowest team salary of any of the playoff teams. In the National League, I, of course, want the Cubs to beat the Dodgers since their payroll is about $100 million less.

Luis Valbuena @ Coors Field (2014)

The 25-8 Cubs did something yesterday that hadn’t been done since 1929. They lost two games. But that wasn’t the exciting part. It was the first time since 1929 that a team had gone this far into the season without losing back-to-back games.

Today’s photo is of Luis Valbuena who played for the Cubs from 2012 until 2014. The Cubs ditched him before last season so that Kris Bryant could take over at third. Valbuena currently plays for the Houston Astros. The Cubs received Dexter Fowler in the trade, and he has been a great addition for Chicago.

Jake Arrieta is on fire

Jake Arrieta had a pretty good season last year (2014) except on the day I took this photo. On that day he gave up nine runs in just five innings. Coors Field can do that to any pitcher.

Since then he has been the best pitcher in MLB. This season he has 21 wins and an ERA below 2. He is the main reason the Cubs are going to the postseason in 2015. No other pitcher on the Cubs has more than 10 wins.
