2 REALLLLY good offensive clubs matching up at Wrigley this week. One interesting area is BB & K rate ranking. @Dodgers 2nd-best BB%, 5th-lowest K% in MLB. @Cubs 4th-best BB%, 8th lowest-K%. So patience, but also don't strike out a bunch. That's a sign of a really good offense.— Len Kasper (@LenKasper) April 23, 2019
