Cubs Giants Matchup

Cubs Giants start a series today.  Let’s see what the Giants have been up to lately.

SFN Team Status

Tm W L BAT PITCH UR
SFN 51 50 -32.5 -1.8 -3.5 20190723
SFN 63 62 -52.7 3.9 1.2 20190820

In the last 4 weeks Giants went 12-12 even steven, still at +1 for the season and an outside chance at a wild card if they streak the next 6 weeks.  Let’s hope they don’t start that streak today.

BAT down PITCH and UR about the same.  They should be under 0.500 based on simple run differential but real wins and losses are all that matter.

The above is lineup from last game played.  According BAT in team status based upon seasonal runs scored SFN is very under water with respect to hitting.  The above is confirmation.

Not much more to say about these this series.  Until then ….
