Friday Clash Between Los Angeles Dodgers And Chicago Cubs

April 19, 2011

Los Angeles DodgersThis weekend the Los Angeles Dodgers will battle against the Chicago Cubs. The series will take place in Chicago and this will be a 3 game series.

To win the 2011 World Series, MLB odds have The Dodgers at 40-1 and the Cubs at 45-1.

As they are both barely under the .500 mark on the year these teams are both struggling this season. Even though they are below .500 while playing on the road, both teams are .500 at home. In the series this should give the Cubs a slight advantage.

The Dodgers have actually been one of the worst teams in their division in terms of ERA while they are known for having a solid pitching staff. Compared to the 52 runs they have scored so far they have allowed 78 runs on the season. If they hope to take this series they will need their bats to pick up and their pitching to be more effective.

Although the Cubs have at least had more success on offense than the Dodgers, they are suffering from some of the same issues that the Dodgers are. For this series the Cubs will send Coleman, Dumpster and Zambian to the mound. Although Dumpster and Zambian are veterans and have had should stabilize as the season progresses, none of these pitchers have been especially good this season.

On the mound the Dodgers will have Billingsley, Lilly and Kuroda. Although Billingsley has been up and down this season, he is seen by many to be an ace caliber pitcher. If the Dodgers hope to compete for the playoffs this season they need him to step up.
