Anthony Rizzo Day was a winner for the Cubs.
Anthony Rizzo didn’t deliver any elevator babies or end terrorism in his Cubs debut, but he did have a pretty great night. He looked slick in the field, and had a single (originally scored an error, but it was certainly close enough to be called a hit) and a double (that probably could have been called a single and advancing on a throw).
As good as Rizzo was, Randy Wells was not. He couldn’t hit his spots – hell, he couldn’t even hit the strike zone against the opposing pitcher who was trying to bunt – and he once again allowed an insane number of base runners in his short outing. As he walked off the mound, I was pretty certain we’d seen the last of Randy Wells starting for the Cubs this year. Maybe ever.
