The Cubs were dead last in saves this season, with just 28, and were second-to-last in save percentage with just 57 percent.
They were also dead last in the majors in a number of categories, including WHIP (1.53), Ks per bases on balls (1.56), OPS conceded (.782), and walks conceded (259). Their ERA was ever-so-slightly better, 4.49 (27th).
Of the five pitchers that made 30 or more appearances for the Cubbies, none had a sub-3.00 ERA or sub-1.20 WHIP, and only Carlos Marmol had a Ks per nine over 7.5. In addition, all four of the righties on that list had losing records (lefty James Russell went 7-1).
Of particular mediocrity were two of Chicago's righty relievers, Rafael Dolis (pictured) and Manny Corpas. In 85 frames, the two gave up 39 bases on balls against only 52 strikeouts.
Corpas posted ERA and WHIP numbers of 5.01 and 1.41, but he wasn't anywhere near as bad as Dolis (6.39 and 1.66, which is even worse when you consider that he spent a few weeks as the Cubbies' closer).
And unfortunately, the Cubbies are on the hook for both of their contracts for the next two seasons.
