I love watching Albert Almora (Jr.) play defense, here’s a gem from last night.
Jon Lester is pretty good, probably why the Cubs gave him a crap-ton of money this off-season. Lester was brilliant this afternoon as he was able to locate his cutter and off-speed stuff on both corners. The Cubs’ new ace worked three scoreless innings, giving up three hits, while walking no one, and striking out two. Mike Olt is bringing it this spring, he had another productive day in field, and at the plate (2-for-3, with two singles). The big hit came from an unlikely source, nine hitter Mike Baxter who ripped a two-run single off of Zack Greinke in the second inning to give the Cubs an early lead.
