Nate McLouth was traded to the Braves today, meaning that everyone’s favorite Cub-killing, undeserved-gold-glove-winning center fielder will be playing against the Cubs tomorrow. So that’s the bad news. The good news is, the Cubs play the Braves four more times (after tonight) this season. They play the Pirates 13 more times. That saves them nine games against McLouth, which, based on his career line against the Cubs, will save the Cubs pitching staff something like 1.6 home runs, 1.6 doubles, 1 stolen base and 5 walks.
Yeah, not sad to see him leaving the division.
