Kyle Hendricks just didn’t have it last night from the word go, as his early-season, early-game issues seem to be something that will haunt him in perpetuity. It’s for that reason – the fact that he always turns it around – that a game like last night’s doesn’t worry me, even as it’s a bummer to see the Cubs lose any time.
At least the bullpen performed reasonably well, except for all the walks. So I guess maybe that’s not a good thing after all?
Kris Bryant homered. Javy Baez homered. Those are definitely good things. And also, there was this!
