At least the Cubs did us the courtesy of losing quickly, and before they started making draft picks for the night.
We’ll get into it in more detail tomorrow, but it was another disappointing start for John Lackey, who continues to struggle with hard contact and fly balls, and hard fly balls that leave the ballpark. By the time Asdrubal Cabrera homered for the second time, the game very much felt over.
That feeling was not aided by the Cubs posting four straight innings hitting into a 4-6-3 double play. That has to be some kind of horrible, Weird Baseball record, right? Lordy I hope so.
