Cubs’ Reds Killers

Mark DeRosa
Sorry for the delay … wanted to give Zambrano a chance to pad his stats a little. This was a fun one. If you thought the Braves’ starters had great Reds Killer numbers, check these out …

Geovany Soto .371 (13-for-35), 7 RBI
Derrek Lee .285 (107-for-375), 29 HRs, 77 RBI (29 HRs are 9 more than he’s got against any other team)
Mark DeRosa .433 (45-for-104), 24 RBIs
Aramis Ramirez .326 (143-for-439), 23 HRs, 87 RBI
Ryan Theriot .359 (37-for-103), 3 HRs, 14 RBIs (both most vs. any team)
Alfonso Soriano .314 (38-for-121)

Carlos Zambrano 12-9, 3.19 ERA in 166.1 innings
Kerry Wood 13-4, 2.88 ERA, 180 Ks in 144 innings

Other than Zambrano and Wood, Cubs pitchers are pretty average against us. Bobby Howry (2.00 ERA in 27 innings) and Carlos Marmol (2.70 ERA, 18 Ks in 16 2/3 innings) have been tough against the Reds.

Anti Reds Killers? The only thing going for us is Fukudome is only hitting .211 against us so far. Mike Fontenot hits .119 against us. And Michael Wuertz has given up 5 dongs in 22 2/3 innings against the Reds.
