The Cubs rotation may have the least strikeout upside of any in the league. But guess what? The group's pitch-to-contact ways line up awfully well with an infield that features at least two elite defenders in Javy Báez and Anthony Rizzo, and potentially a third if Nico Hoerner becomes the regular second baseman.
On this episode of Onto Waveland, Brett Taylor and Sahadev Sharma dive into the relationship between the rotation and the infield. The guys also embrace their baseball nerd within, talking about seam-shifted wake and seam mirroring, making both accessible for any listener. Plus, Patrick Mooney checks in with a dispatch from Sloan Park.
