Padres Take Series as Lester Remains Winless
This is really interesting to me. I don’t value wins and losses as much as the next guy does, but it is interesting how every time someone signs a big deal, and they don’t live up to expectation, you cringe at the offer they were given. This is the case with Giancarlo Stanton as well. More on that in a post next week on MetsPlus.
Here’s the original post from “Born On Third”
Things started out well enough today as the Cubs jumped on the listless Padres with two runs in the bottom of the first. I say listless because the Padres were sleepwalking in the first, they made two errors and looked generally disinterested. From that point on it was all Padres, as they scored five unanswered runs en route to a 5-2 win. Jon Lester was just okay again today, he worked into the sixth inning but made far too many mistakes up in the zone, he needs a road start or two to settle in. The Cubs threatened a few times as they left the bases-loaded twice, and were just 2-for-8 with runners in scoring position.
