The Cubs currently have not had a complete game this season:

No team has ever gone an entire season with zero complete games:

This is actually somewhat surprising, seeing how Dusty takes pitchers to relatively insane pitch counts. Unfortunately for the Cubs, 120-130 pitches still ususally means the 6th inning :cool: .

How many complete games do the Sox have this season? Can't be that many, i can only think of 2 right at the moment.

Edit: I see the Sox have 5 CG, I can't remember 5. I can't believe the Twins only have 1 CG.

The Twins have had a lot of 8 inning ones, the Cubs just don't have the efficiency in their young pitchers.

I am really suprised Zambrano hasn't had one. People still think he could win the Cy Young? Man, the NL is awful.

Wow, the 2004 Yankees only had ONE complete game?! I knew their pitching staff wasn't all that great, but geez! A team with 101 wins?!:o:

the Royals are only 2 1/2 games behind the cubs to place the cubs in the MLB cellar!

The Royals are a far surperior team from top to bottom. I still think they would be .500 in the NL Central.

The Royals have a winning record in interleague play. They killed the Cards, but then, so did the Cubs.

Not a real telling stat though, look at the top 10 who lead it, not a looker in the bunch

It doesn't matter - they're still pathetic. Getting one complete game doesn't change the fact that they're going to lose something like 95 games. They are total losers who have fans that care more about attendance than winning. That makes their fans losers too.
