I don't know who this guy is pitching for the Cubs, but its not Carlos Silva. It just can't be. It must be a doppelganger.
I mean, the doppelganger is 7-0 on the year. The real Carlos Silva went 5-18 over the last two years.
The doppelganger has a 3.12 ERA. The real Carlos Silva had a 6.81 ERA over the last two years and owns a career 4.64 ERA.
The doppelganger had 11 K's today against a pretty good hitting Cardinals team (just ask Randy Wells). The real Carlos Silva has never struck out more than 8 in a game.
Whoever this doppelganger is, the Cubs may want to consider keeping an eye on him in case the real Carlos Silva decides to come back. Until then, let's all enjoy the ride.
