Harvey reminds me a lot of Prior. He's very deliberate in his mound mannerisms.

Harvey just doesn't have it right now. Hanging every breaking pitch.

Get to him now before he regains it.

Do Cubs players have to watch video of their opposing pitcher as part of pre-game preparation?  Anyone know?  Or is that all voluntary?  I heard Len say Castro had spent time watching video on Harvey.......and it left me wondering.

FWIW Jackson very efficient with pitch count after three with just 33 pitches.

Nice at bat there by Castro, without ever even getting a ball.

Mets are putting good wood on the ball but the balls are going to where our guys can get to them.  Let that be as much as the Mets hit EJ today.

All hitters are offered video along with advance scouting reports. Don't know if Cubs make it mandatory.

Watching video on Harvey seems to be paying off for Castro.......

I doubt the Cubs have to make it mandatory.

As long as the Cubs bats can rescue the lead again, I can stomach a little bump in the road.....and as I type.....A BEAUTIFUL DP by Barney & Castro.  That's the way to shut down the momentum.........opps another single/runner to cope with.

DP saves Jackson a run.

Now the bottom half of the Cubs order.

Time to grab a beer.
