Tonight’s loss to the Brewers wasn’t a particularly fun game to follow. Offensive woes, mental mistakes, physical errors, poor plate approach … on and on. You know the story.

The Cubs were always going to have a talent gap this year – you could eyeball the roster and understand that truth. Indeed, I would argue that it was by design, in service of the long-term vision. But what the Cubs didn’t have to have was an avalanche of poor fundamental play. The mistakes just keep piling up, and when you factor in the talent gap, you get a pretty clear picture of one of the worst teams in baseball.

At least Edwin Jackson’s stat sheet will say he had a good start.
