The Chicago Cubs’ 8-7 series-opening victory over the San Diego Padres on May 10 feels like forever ago at this point. After that win that pushed Jon Lester to 4-1 on the season, the Cubs were 25-6, good enough for the best record by any team to open a year since the Tigers over 30 years ago. However, the Cubbies have floundered a little bit in the past two weeks, losing three...
Chicago Cubs starter Jon Lester is known for his inability to throw to first.

Lester spoke to Gordon Wittenmyer of the Chicago Sun-Times about the...
