The Cubs had a rare day off yesterday as they geared up for the interleague series in Oakland. A bunch of the guys played Pebble Beach while Len visited Golden Gate Park and Haight/Ashbury. Lately, the Cubs have been the comeback kids, winning games in walkoff fashion thanks in part to wild pitching by the opposition. Cub hitters are showing more plate discipline, which can lead to this sort of thing. Meanwhile, Cub pitching has been outstanding of late. Offseason acquisition John Lackey gave us quite the quote the other day when he said that he didn’t come to Chicago for a haircut, he came to win some jewelry. He pitches like it & wears his emotions on his sleeve. On Monday morning at 8:30, Len and Lin will wrap up this quick series with the Athletics before the Cubs come back to Wrigley for another homestand.
