Hey man, your guess is as good as mine.
The Cubs have a rich history of players who took too much advantage of having nights off in Chicago because they played mostly day games, but this is a different group of guys.
That ain't it.
It's kind of a mystery.
In games after a day off, the Cubs have 2 wins and 9 losses.
There are 4 losses at home, and 5 away.
The wins are 1 away and 1 at home.
Overall the Cubs have been outscored 43 to 21 in these games.
I couldn't tell you, but it's a "thing" isn't it?
The loss yesterday was particularly galling since the Phillies are so bad and in such disarray.
They lead all baseball by far in losses with 63.
Today we'll see Cole Hamels who is of course Mr. Starter Trade Rumor Guy for us in Chicago, vs Jake "The Brake" Arrieta.
A win would make us all feel better, Jake, so do your thing.
(Still all nutty with work, sorry)
