Swept at home, just awfull. AND can we ever beat a good team!! Maybe, just maybe Jason Heyward was right about this team. Too old and too young. I say go too young and eat a season or two.Games are averaging 16 K’s a game 8 per team and we are at the 10.5 mark. Ten K’s a game equals 3.1 innings NOT HITTING THE BALL.
We need to get ahead of the curve. Pitching and defense is the new/old model now. Waiting for the PED 3 run homer is over. Looking at our defense and its MLB leading 28 errors is killing us.
1B- below ave.
2B- below ave
SS- below ave
3B- ave
LF- below ave
CF- ave to slightly above
RF-ave
C- above ave

AND NO ONE SAW THIS COMING….that is except for Jason Heyward.
