A Hundred Next Years

This is a blog about the Chicago Cubs written by a guy who walks around with a 1970 Don Kessinger card in his briefcase. That pretty much says it all.

Finding the feebleness

So far this year, as measured by OPS, the Cubs are getting better than league-wide offensive production from their leftfielders, centerfielders, catchers, shortstops and pinch-hitters; the rightfielders, first-basemen, third-basemen, second-basemen, and pitchers just aren’t holding up their ends.

Just as I suspected—it’s those weak-hitting pitchers who have been holding back the Cubs offense all along!
