Jon Lester – 83.1

Jose Quintana – 81.2

Miguel Gonzalez – 78.2

John Lackey – 75.1

Jon Lester is a horse and betting against him when it comes to IP is crazy.

Jose Abreu – 77

Melky Cabrera – 71

Kris Bryant – 62

Anthony Rizzo – 61

Jason Heyward – 50

While the Cubs offense has dominated headlines the past few years, Avi Garcia has seemingly hit everything over the plate this year. Abreu is also quietly putting together a very consistent approach at the plate.

Which team has hit more homers at home?

Cubs: 51 in 35 games

White Sox: 27 in 27 games

The Friendly Confines have been very friendly to the Cubs. The White Sox on the other hand seem to only eat their Wheaties on the road.

Who has the highest K/9 this season (minimum 10 appearances)?

Tommy Kahnle – 15.25

David Robertson – 13.14

Wade Davis – 12.73

Carl Edwards Jr. – 12.65

Nate Jones – 11.57

Justin Grimm – 11.28

With a fastball that can touch 100-mph and a wipeout changeup, Kahnle has had a career year this season, thanks in part to his improved control.

Who leads the Cubs in holds?

Koji Uehara – 8

Carl Edwards Jr. – 7

Hector Rondon – 7

Pedro Strop – 7

Brian Duensing – 2

Although there wasn’t much fanfare when the Cubs signed Uehara to bolster their pen, the 42-year-old has been one of their most dependable relievers posting a 2.70 ERA and a 0.86 WHIP.

6. Name four of the seven prospects the White Sox received in the Adam Eaton and Chris Sale trades.

Lucas Giolito, Reynaldo Lopez and Dane Dunning from the Nationals.

Yoan Moncada, Michael Kopech, Luis Alexander Basabe and Victor Diaz from the Red Sox.

Albert Almora Jr. – 40 games

Jon Jay – 18 games

Ian Happ – 17 games

Jason Heyward – 10 games

With Dexter Fowler gone, Almora Jr. has made many impressive plays at CF, but Joe Maddon has rotated several guys at the position.

8. Outside of pitcher and catcher, Ben Zobrist has appeared at every position on the field this season except for two spots. Name them.

3B and CF

Who uses Frank Sinatra for their walkup music?

Todd “The ToddFather” Frazier. We think “Fly Me to the Moon” is the absolutely perfect song for the big bopper from Jersey.

Which team has retired the most numbers?

White Sox – 10: Nellie Fox (2), Harold Baines (3), Luke Appling (4), Minnie Minoso (9), Luis Aparicio (11), Paul Konerko (14), Ted Lyons (16), Billy Pierce (19), Frank Thomas (35), Carlton Fisk (72) ... and Mark Buehrle is set to have his number retired June 24th.

Cubs – 5: Ron Santo (10), Ernie Banks (14), Ryne Sandberg (23), Billy Williams (26), Fergie Jenkins and Greg Maddux (31)

 

How’d you do?

If you got all 10 right, we underestimated your knowledge — or made the questions too easy.

 

Seven, eight or nine right? You definitely watch a lot of baseball. 

Four, five or six? We bet you’re devoted to one of the teams.

Three or fewer? We get it, we miss hockey and basketball too. But don’t worry, then NFL season is right around the corner!
