Cubs Fun Fact of the Day — Carlos Silva

Posted on 27 April 2010 by Lou

We have a new daily feature for the MyCubsToday website – a fun fact of the day related to Chicago Cubs lore.  It could be anything to do with a particular player or coach.  It could related to Wrigley Field.  Or it could relate to the Cubs organization in general.  We hope you like it, and here’s our first ever “Cubs Fun Fact of the Day”

We’ll start it off with a fact about Cubs starting pitcher Carlos Silva.  Silva has been a major surprise in the Cubs rotation during this 2010 MLB schedule.  After last night’s quality start, he has now made 4 consecutive quality starts to start off his Cubs career – a pretty impressive stat.  The last Cubs starting pitcher to start his Cubs career with 4 straight quality starts???!!!  You guessed it, current Cubs starter Ted Lilly he began his career with the Cubs with a bang back in 2007.  In his 3+ year stint with the Cubs, Lilly has made 96 starts and won 45 of them.  His 44 wins from 2007-2009 tops all Cubs starting pitchers during that same time span.  If Silva puts up those kind of numbers over the next 2-3 years, we will be very very happy Cubs fans, and we could finally be talking about a Cubs World Series Championship.  Ah, to dream…
