Matt Swarmer has impressed in just one week in the big leagues, in particular with a unique and deceptive slider. Our Pitch Doctor, Brendan Miller, took a look at the numbers to see what has made Swarmer so effective thus far.
Happy Monday, dear readers. Hope everyone has some eventful Memorial Day festivities planned.
I'll be out at the Friendly Confines, where the Cubs will host the Brewers for a split doubleheader to kick off a four-game series. Originally, it was supposed to be a regular three-game set, but remember that rainout on the first Friday of the year? This is the day they decided to reschedule the game on. At the time, I didn't consider what the upcoming stretch would look like with another game added into the mix, but now I can see how rough of a stretch it's going to be.
I can tell you why here, or I can tell you to keep on reading to find out. Personally, I think the second option is best, because there are some other news, notes and nuggets (including an appearance from my more serious side) that you'll want to take a peak at.
Let's get into it. Here are your Monday morning Cubs thoughts for May 30.
