Preview:



The Cubs may have the worst record in the National League, but they have not played that way in their first two games in Wrigley against the Mets.

Travis Wood looks to continue his home success as the Cubs go for their first three-game sweep at Wrigley in almost two years Thursday night against the sputtering New York Mets.

Chicago (22-34) has won five of six games at home after dropping 12 of its first 19 there. The success has been spurred by a 1.24 ERA while its pitchers have limited opponents to .201 batting.

The Cubs have held New York (28-31) to two earned runs in the series' first two games.

Chicago is seeking its first three-game sweep at Wrigley since July 13-15, 2012, against Arizona, and hasn't done that against the Mets since April 23-25, 2004.

Wood (5-5, 5.15 ERA) is 3-0 with a 2.00 ERA over his last four starts on the North Side -- a stark difference from his 8.04 ERA while dropping four of six road outings.

The left-hander was pounded in Milwaukee on Friday, giving up five runs in the first inning before yielding two more and getting pulled with two outs in the third of an 11-5 loss.

Wood may have better luck against the Mets, against whom he's 2-0 with a 2.92 ERA in three starts since 2012.

Starlin Castro, meanwhile, is trying to build on his three hits and three RBIs from Wednesday's 5-4 win, atoning for a three-run error in the first inning.

The Mets entered this series one game under .500, and squandered first-inning leads in both games. They've gone 2 for 17 with runners in scoring position, and have left the bases loaded three times -- twice Wednesday.

Jacob deGrom (0-2, 2.42) is getting a fifth chance at his first career win, and he could use some help from his teammates.

The rookie right-hander has been backed by eight total runs of support, and the bullpen has surrendered seven in 15 innings while blowing two saves in his four outings.

DeGrom got enough help from the offense and was in position to win Saturday in Philadelphia, but Jeurys Familia blew the save in the ninth before the Mets went on to win 5-4 in 14.

The only runs deGrom allowed came on a seventh inning homer before leaving with one out. He's reached or completed the seventh three times.

Reds trying to land Jose Reyes?


Homer Bailey
According to Alex Apple of  The Big Red Machine, Several insiders have reported that the Reds have discussed what it would take to land Jose Reyes from the Mets. Apple to this point is unsure how far the talks have progressed and whether the talks are still going on.

However Apple explains, a deal for Reyes would make sense for both teams. The Reds need a leadoff hitter and could look to upgrade over Paul Janish at shortstop. The Mets, on the other hand, are looking for pitching and some depth for their depleted minor league system.

So what would a package for Jose Reyes look like and would Walt Jocketty bite?

Apple says the Reds would almost certainly have to give up either Mike Leake, Travis Wood or Homer Bailey. And in addition, the Mets could be looking for two more prospects, one a top tier prospect and another lower level prospect. There has been much discussion regarding which of the three starting pitchers listed above would be most likely to be traded. Leake, I believe, would probably be Walt Jocketty’s last choice with Wood or Bailey going before him.
