No Cubs Status this week

Cubs are 22-18 giving them a real WAA=+4 which is where they were last week.  Not much differs from last week so we’ll skip this week.

There was a bug in the scripts that tier which slightly changes the Cubs’ makeup.  Here are current tiers for CHN.

Type Tier Name_teamid
Lineups 1 CHN
SP 2 Tyler_Chatwood_CHN
SP 2 Kyle_Hendricks_CHN
SP 1 Jon_Lester_CHN
SP 4 Jose_Quintana_CHN
Relief 1 CHN

Tiers for SP shifted putting Hendricks at Tier 2 instead of Tier 1.  Quintana dropped to Tier 4.  Lineups weren’t affected by the bug and Relief is still Tier 1.

Since we’re here let’s lookup at the lines and see if they stabilized.

DATE 05_17 7:35_PM CHN ATL
LINEAWAY CHN [ 0.533 ] < 0.524 >
STARTAWAY 1.66(0.670) Jon_Lester_CHN TIER 1
LINEHOME ATL [ 0.490 ] < 0.500 >
STARTHOME 0.15(0.545) Mike_Soroka_ATL TIER 3
------------------------------------
CHN 22 18 ATL 26 16
DELTAWAA 6 WINPCT 0.542 ATL
------------------------------------
TIER COMBOS
CHN lineup=1 ==> ATL SP=3 / RP=1 == 4.73 runs
ATL lineup=1 ==> CHN SP=1 / RP=1 == 4.26 runs

They’re stable.  Cubs at 0.524 slightly favored by the Ouija and they’re slightly favored by the Tier Combo so this game is another clear discard.  Cubs are fielding a 1-1-1 lineup-starter-relief combo today which is about as good as a team can be on any particular day.
