Preview: Mets at Cubs Aug. 29, 2009

Bobby Parnell (3-6 5.08) vs. Ryan Dempster (7-7 4.07)


What to watch: The Cubs are 2-4 in the last 6 games that Dempster started. Dempster certainly isn’t living up to the 4-year/$52 million contract he signed before this season. His career year last season at 17-6 with a 2.96 ERA is proving to be an aberration. The “Parnell Experiment” has really hit the wall. In his last two starts he’s given up 14 earned runs in 8 innings. If the wind is blowing out at Wrigley today this could be a very long game.
