Chicago Cubs vs. Milwaukee Brewers Preview, Friday 5/19, 1:20 CT

The Cubs go for their fourth straight win. You will need this today: Even by Chicago standards, the change in weather from Thursday to Friday is pretty extreme -- from upper 70s and unlimited sunshine to 40s and chances of showers and storms with a strong breeze off Lake Michigan. Here is the detailed forecast. As you'll see at that link, Saturday's forecast isn't much better (though somewhat warmer). This is already the second visit by the Brewers to Wrigley Field and they don't come back until September. So... I'd say the Cubs will do their best to get this one in. Presuming they do so,...

Cubs vs Brewers – Series Preview (May 19-21): TV and Game Info, Pitching Matchups, Insights

What a great series that was. The offense produced a ton of runs, and the pitching was able to limit the Reds’ potent offense. It was the first series sweep we’ve seen the Cubs complete all year, and it could not have come at a better time. Before the series started, there was much talk … The post Cubs vs Brewers – Series Preview (May 19-21): TV and Game Info, Pitching Matchups, Insights appeared first on Cubs Insider.

Chicago Cubs Lineup: Schwarber Batting Leadoff, Happ in Center Field, Javy at Short

The Cubs square off against the vaunted Milwaukee Brewers today at Wrigley Field. Okay, I’ll admit that was a bit sarcastic but who would’ve thought the Cubs would be in third place as they face the Brewers today, two games back? And let’s not forget that the Brew Crew has won nine of their last … The post Chicago Cubs Lineup: Schwarber Batting Leadoff, Happ in Center Field, Javy at Short appeared first on Cubs Insider.

On The Horizon: Cubs vs. Brewers Series Preview

On The Horizon: Cubs vs. Brewers Series Preview

This, oddly, could be a battle for first place in the N.L. Central. The Milwaukee Brewers have been off to a very good start. However, they appear to be fattening up on bad teams: 6-1 over the Reds, 3-0 against the Mets, 2-0 over the Blue Jays and 2-1 against the Padres. That’s 13-2 against those four teams and 10-14 against everyone else. After his hot April start, Eric Thames is hitting .256/.373/.465 in May, which is good but not anywhere close to what he did in April. That might be closer to his real level of talent. Point is, the Brewers have looked good so far, but it might be a...

Brewers @ Cubs: Espino vs Butler (Game 41)

MIL (24-18): RHP Paolo Espino (0-0, ---) CHC (21-19): RHP Eddie Butler (1-0, 0.00) First pitch: 1:20pmCST On a night when the Cubs desperately needed someone to go 6 IP, 0 ER, 5 K, 3 B, Butler went 6 IP, 0 ER, 5 K, 3 B and won in his Cub debut against the Cardinals on Friday in St. Louis. His plan is to stay in the rotation, and if he can pitch like that, then his plan is a good one. The Brewers haven't seen much of him. Overall, they are 1-5 (.200) against him. Villar has the hit. Santana has a walk. Espino makes his MLB debut (after 11 years in the minors) in place of the ineffective...
