Even though Starlin Castro had a great game, it was Starling Marte that brought the entertainment. That was one heck of a rundown yesterday that Starling Marte got caught in. Just in case you missed it, here it is:
Edwin Jackson has been uneven this season, although he’s been far better than he was last season.
“I just have to make a better pitch,” Jackson said. “I have to do a better job of mixing it up instead of getting beat on the same pitch twice [to McCutchen]. You feel good and you let the guy on their team who’s the threat beat you twice.
So, was it the Cubs fault that they lost? Or was it just a case that they played against Andrew McCutchen, the reigning MVP.
Now, the other pondering question is that the Cubs are brutal on the road. How can they fix this? 10-22 on the road. I think if there was anyway a team could choose, they’d rather have a better record on the road than home. It’s just common sense.
