Lot’s of mental errors Monday night.
Theriot gets throw out going second to third on a ball hit to his right, Dempster tosses a pickoff throw into center field, and Freel makes a force play at third too close for comfort–each factored into the Cubs’ eighth straight loss.
We knew the hitting would come around, even though it felt like the Cubs would never score again, and the starting pitching as been terrific.
However, the bullpen stinks. Pittsburgh scored four runs on 11 hits against the pen. Bad, bad, and bad.
