Angels make their first trip across the Mississippi

"Set your alarms for 11:20AM because every game in this series starts then. Three games Drew Butera Jersey , and all are day games at Wrigley field - just like in the olden days. What are the odds the Angels can play well on the road now that they swept the Brewers at home? We will know soon.Normally I write more of a preview than this, but I had Al Yellon from Bleed Cubbie Blue give me the low down on the Cubs, so here you go:“Could someone please remind the Cubs pitching staff that the 2019 season has started?Cubs pitchers have been mostly lousy this year, though the bullpen is now on a scoreless streak of 15鈪?innings (and even so, the bullpen’s ERA is 6.34). Starting pitching, apart from Jon Lester (who’s now on the injured list after hurting himself running the bases), has been almost completely awful. They’ve allowed the most runs in the National League.On the other hand, the offense has been great. Entering Thursday’s game the Cubs are second in the N.L. in runs, BA and OBP and third in SLG and OPS. Unexpectedly, Jason Heyward has been at the forefront of this, hitting .371/.452/.714 with four home runs, half as many HR as he hit all last year.All of this has resulted in a 3-8 record with a run differential of -2, which just makes me go 炉\_(銉?_/炉Over the weekend, you will see... well , we’re not quite sure who the Cubs’ starting pitchers will be. The team has no one listed yet as a probable starter, though it’s likely Cole Hamels and Kyle Hendricks should be in there somewhere. It’s been said former Angel Tyler Chatwood will start Sunday, but he threw 27 pitches in relief Wednesday, so again... 炉\_(銉?_/炉Then there’s the weather, which will be much colder than Angels players are used to, plus Sunday looks like a washout. Welcome to Chicago in April!Lastly, we’d like to thank Tommy La Stella for almost singlehandedly crushing the Brewers. You’ll love TLS, he’s a lot of fun.Know your foe:Cubs - who’s hot (Last 7 Days):Jason Heyward.650 OBP, 4 HR, 2 SB, 6 BB, 6 RBIBen Zobrist.474 OBP, 2 RBIWeather ForecastGAME 1Pitcher vs. BattersSummary:In his first time out, Tyler Skaggs was saddled with a loss despite only giving up 2 runs. Of course it also took him 86 pitches to get through 4.2 innings. He fared much better against the Rangers with 6.1 innings Cheslor Cuthbert Jersey , 101 pitches (70% strikes), and just 1 run allowed. He hasn’t faced the Cubs in recent years and this will be his first start at Wrigley.Pitch Data:Summary:Cole Hamels will probably start this game, probably. Since the Cubs rotation is a bit of a mess, no official announcement has been made as to who will start any of these games. Hamels has been rough on the Angels the last few years because you know - he’s a lefty. IN 41 IP over 2017-2018, Hamels held the Angels to 11 runs, good for a 2.41 ERA. Jonathan Lucroy has a .480 OBP against Hamels in 21 ABs and Mike Trout has a .414 OBP in 23 ABs. The rest of the guys? Not so great.GAME 2Pitcher vs. BattersSummary:Chris Stratton is still here and Jaime Barria (who helped win Wednesday’s game is not. Stratton already has negative WAR and a 2.040 WHIP in his two starts. He hasn’t really looked that good so far and perhaps his saving grace is that he notched a win against the Cubs last May. Expect some balls to go out of the park in this one, however.Pitch Data:Summary:Kyle Hendricks might start this game. If he does, don’t expect Justin Bour to get out of his slump (1 for 14 v. Hendricks). Cozart has had the best luck against Hendricks so maybe that will bode well for him. Hendicks has been pretty awful in 2 starts with 18 hits 11 runs (6 earned), and 3 home runs allowed over 8.1 innings.GAME 3Pitcher vs. BattersNotable StatsSummary:Summary:Trevor Cahill is perhaps about the only off-season pickup I thought was a potential deal. So far he hasn’t disappointed and has been stead while flashing some plus pitches. If his first 3 games are any inclination, Cahill could toss 6 innings, around 90 pitches, and perhaps come away with a quality start. But this is hungry Cubs team who can still do some damage offensively.Pitch Data:Summary:Tyler Chatwood hasn’t faced Angels hitters all that much with the exception of Justin Upton who has 9 ABs against him. The rest of the team has a combined 15 ABs and most of the current roster hasn’t faced Chatwood before. Chatwood is iffy to start this game and if he did, it would be his first start fo 2019. He’s tossed 6 innings in 4 relief appearances, allowing 4 runs and 6 hits. He hasn’t thrown over 36 pitches so I’d expect a bullpen game if he makes the start.Overall Verdict: The Angels offense picked up a bit against the Brewers and they could use that against a Chicago team that has given up 53 runs in their first 8 games of April. The Cubs offense has been strong though with 38 runs in their last 5 games so get ready for some runs in this series. The teams on paper seem fairly evenly matched in terms of offense but the Angels certainly have a pitching advantage. Rain is forecast for Sunday which could make this 3 game series turn into 2. Current Standings (Thursday @ 4PM)Notes/Credits:(Pitch tracking data from vs. current roster from The Dodgers announced their 2019 minor league coaching staffs on Monday Brian Flynn Jersey , with six new coaches added to the organization plus several new positions for others."The Dodgers on Wednesday announced their minor league coaching staffs for the 2018 season, with six of the 33 positions filled by new hires in the organization.With the exception of pitching coach Bill Simas, Oklahoma City will have a new coaching staff. Travis Barbary takes over as manager in his 25th year with the organization after spending the last 12 years as a catching coordinator.Joining Barbary and Simas will be Scott Coolbaugh and Jeremy Rodriguez. Coolbaugh is new to the organization, coming over from Baltimore where he was the major league hitting coach for the last four years. In his fourth year with the Dodgers, Rodriguez will serve as third base coach and handle the infield coordination. The 29-year-old managed the 2017 Great Lakes team, as well as the 2018 rookie-level Ogden team.Down at Double-A Tulsa, Scott Hennessey is back for his second full year as Drillers’ manager after taking the interim job in July 2017. The Drillers were Texas League champions under Hennessey in 2018.Joining Hennessey will be Dave Borkowski, Adam Melhuse and Petie Montero. Borkowski is back for his second year in organization, serving in the same pitching coach role as last season. Melhuse moves from Triple-A hitting coach down to Double-A, while Montero moves up from Class-A Rancho to the same coaching position.Mark Kertenian moves up from rookie-level Arizona to manage Class-A Rancho. Connor McGuinness is back as pitching coach for the Quakes while the rest of the staff is new to Rancho.Dustin Kelly moves up from rookie-level Ogden to be Rancho’s hitting coach, while a familiar face in Elian Herrera joins the organization as a coach. Herrera was last with the Dodgers in 2016 when he was on a minor league deal. Before that it was in 2013 when he made only eight appearances at the major league level.Herrera spent four seasons altogether in the big leagues between the Dodgers and Brewers.John Shoemaker is back for his 43rd season with the Dodgers and is once again managing at Great Lakes. This will be Shoemaker’s 26th season as a minor league manager.Rounding out the newcomers are Jason Bourgeois (Great Lakes coach), Cordell Hipolito (Ogden coach), Stephanos Stroop (AZL pitching coach) and Johermyn Chaves (Dominican Summer League hitting coach).Triple-A Oklahoma CityManager – Travis BarbaryPitching Coach – Bill SimasHitting Coach – Scott Coolbaugh*Coach – Jeremy Rodriguez Double-A Tulsa Manager - Scott Hennessey Pitching Coach – Dave BorkowskiHitting Coach – Adam MelhuseCoach – Pedro MonteroClass-A Rancho CucamongaManager – Mark KertenianPitching Coach – Connor McGuinnessHitting Coach – Dustin KellyCoach – Elian Herrera*Class-A Great LakesManager – John ShoemakerPitching Coach – Luis MezaHitting Coach – Justin VieleCoach – Jason Bourgeois*Rookie-advanced OgdenManager – Austin ChubbPitching Coach – Dean StilesHitting Coach – Seth ConnerCoach – Cordell Hipolito*Rookie-level AZL DodgersManager – Jair FernandezPitching Coach – Stephanos Stroop*Hitting Coach – Jarek CunninghamCoach- Chris GutierrezDominican Summer League DodgersManager - Keyter ColladoManager - Fumi IshibashiPitching Coach - Ramon TroncosoPitching Coach - Roberto GironHitting Coach - Johermyn Chaves*Hitting Coach - Sergio MendezCoach - Pedro MegaCoach - Antonio BautistaCoach - Dunior Zerpa *new to Dodgers organization
