Well, it ain't Matt Harvey, so maybe the Cubs can score a bit.

Feldman is on track to have 100 pitches by the 3rd inning IF he keeps on laboring.......

Good to see Feldman settling in and gaining some control over pitch count.

And Feldman with the big double to bring in two.

Can Feldman bat every time?

Who says we need the DH?

Coming into today Cubs pitchers had a .403 OPS, fifth in baseball.

(Just for fun, Mariners shortstops have a .418 OPS)

Something interesting I noticed about Castro.

 

For his career he has an .882 OPS when he pulls the ball to left, .899 when he hits it to center, and .719 when he hits opposite field to right.

 

I imagine most guys hit much better when they pull the ball but I was surprised to see him have such a big gap.

Castillo is a pretty much left left center hitter. The high OPS is what surprises me.
