Numbers Game

  • Aramis Ramirez has reached base in all 20 games so far this season, including 13 walks (gasp!). His carrer high for walks is 50 – for an entire season.
  • Kosuke Fukudome leads the league in # of pitches seen per at bat with 4.72. He is batting .357 with an on-base of .477. His style is having an obvious affect on his teammates – they all seem to be more selective at the plate which is paying off huge in getting guys on base and (obviously) scoring.
  • Derrek Lee, Ramirez, Soto, Blanco, Theriot, Fukudome, Reed Johnson & DeRosa are each hitting better than .320 over their last seven games.
  • The Cubs team franchise has 9,999 career wins as of today.  The Chicago National League Ballclub has a lifetime record of 9,999 wins, 9,465 losses for a winning percentage of .514.  They have won 16 National League Pennants, and 2 World Series championships (1907 & 1908)
