Are the Cubs better off with somebody besides Soto catching?

After the Cubs' win Saturday over the Reds, they're now 4-11.

- Cubs are 3-1 in Clevenger starts
- Cubs are 1-10 in Soto starts

It looks like it's not a fluke. Last year, the Cubs were 71-91.

- They were 49-70 in Soto starts
- They were 22-21 in starts by anyone else (22-16 by Koyie Hill, 0-4 by Welington Castillo, 0-1 by Clevenger)

In 2010, somewhat of a reverse happened:

- They were 49-48 in Soto starts
- They were 24-36 in Hill starts
- They were 2-3 in Castillo starts

But in 2009, they were worse in Soto starts again:

- 41-51 in Soto starts
- 42-27 in Hill starts

In 2008, the Cubs were good no matter what:

- 80-51 (.611) in Soto starts
- 16-12 (.571) in Henry Blanco starts
- 1-1 with Koyie Hill

OVERALL: They're 330-331 in regular season since beginning of 2008;

- 220-230 (.489) with Geovany Soto catching
- 110-101 (.521) with anyone else catching
