Chicago Cubs

The Cubs managed to grab Dansby Swanson off the free agent market during all the Correa noise and they certainly had all the national media sweetheart press, too, given its central and east-bias, but since a season-best record of 11-6, they’re 15-30. The Giants are 26-19. The Giants have had the 4th-best pitching in the sport (4.5 fWAR), while the Cubs are 18th-best (3.0 fWAR).

Dennis Lamp was the Cubs’ third-round pick in 1971 out of St. John Bosco High School in Bellflower, California, the same school that eventually produced Nomar Garciaparra. Lamp moved steadily through the Cubs farm system, eventually getting noticed when he was part of a 1974 Cubs farm team in Key West, Florida that went 37-94, yet produced four good MLB pitchers: Lamp, Bruce Sutter, Donnie Moore and Mike Krukow.

Since then the Cubs are 14-29, the worst record in the National League (though only 2½ games worse than the Mets, who are 16-26 in that span). There is exactly one team in Cubs history who has gotten to 10 games under .500 and turned their season around to have a winning record. Note: I am not saying the 2023 Cubs can do this.

For the Chicago Cubs, it’s been a frustrating trend of putting runners on base at a high rate who are then consistently stranded. Finding a balance between working counts and seeking out moments to go into a more aggressive swing mode is a work in progress for an offense that has too often been a weakness. Two days after president of baseball operations Jed Hoyer expressed the need for the team to not only win series but produce some series sweeps, the Los Angeles Angels completed the sweep with the Cubs’ 3-1 loss Thursday. The Cubs (26-36) begin the final leg of the 10-game West Coast trip in San Francisco Friday night with the sixth-worst winning percentage in Major League Baseball.

This night was definitely a long time coming for Jo Adell and Reid Detmers. Adell homered in his first game back in the majors, Detmers finally posted his first win of the season and the Los Angeles Angels defeated the Chicago Cubs 3-1 on Thursday to complete their third series sweep of the year. Adell, who led the Triple-A Pacific Coast League with 18 homers before being called up, tied the game 1-all in the second inning when he hammered a sinker from Drew Smyly (5-4) a projected 455 feet down the left-field line.

ANAHEIM, Calif. — Chicago Cubs first baseman Matt Mervis got the pitch he wanted. He worked a 2-0 count against Los Angeles Angels starter Jaime Barria in the fifth inning Wednesday when a slider from the right-hander caught too much of the zone. Mervis smoked the ball, pulling it to right field with the hardest-hit ball — 110.1 mph — any player either team produced in the game. Mervis, …

Mickey Moniak realizes the Los Angeles Angels are loaded with quality outfielders at the moment, so he strived to stay sharp in the cage and with video study during five straight days without playing in a game recently. When he got another chance to contribute Wednesday night, Moniak delivered with his bat and his glove in another solid win. Mike Trout homered, Moniak had a three-run double and Luis Rengifo hit a tying homer and a tiebreaking RBI single in Los Angeles’ 6-2 victory over the Chicago Cubs.

ANAHEIM, Calif. — Any hope the Chicago Cubs would start stacking wins to move closer to .500 during their West Coast trip has not gained traction.
