A Wild Card game that was actually wild.
Kyle Freeland vs. Jon Lester, in Chicago.
Jon Lester vs. Rich Hill, in Los Angeles.
The unexpected success of the man who wouldn’t throw to first.
Jon Lester should be just fine without David Ross and the rest of baseball can learn something from the Cubs’ catching plan.
Will Cy Young voters again be fooled by the Cubs’ defense?
Why haven’t opposing teams and managers, including the Indians and Terry Francona, done more to exploit Jon Lester’s throwing problesm?
Chicago took Game 1 behind the Jon Lester-David Ross battery and Javier Baez’s power.
Significant money will be handed out to a trio of arms this offseason, so how their mechanics grade out is certainly of great interest.
