Travis Wood = Three Fingers Brown.
First starter for the Cubs to have 8 straight starts of 6 innings and 3 ER or less...to begin the season since Brown.
I still say 3 ER in 6 innings is not a QS....but it is hard to believe that no one has been able to achieve that as a Cubs pitcher since old Mordecai.
Travis is also a pretty good hitting pitcher as well.
Yonder would have been nice to keep if he could have played LF, but he is no longer able to use the ballpark in SD as an excuse to be a Sean casey light. They reconfigured that park to help the hitting. I still like him but he is more like James Loney as a hitter right now.
