No Dicking Around for Lester

3 Oct

In a surprising outcome considering the quick turnaround time and travel the Rockies faced, the Cubs succumbed in a marathon 13-inning game Tuesday in Chicago.  Will hitting coach Chili Davis get fired?  Will manager Maddon? In The Athletic,  Cubs starter Jon Lester muses oddly about what transpired:

“Like I said, sometimes you need to get, for lack of a better term, sorry, you need to get your dick knocked in the dirt to appreciate where you’re at. Maybe we needed that. Maybe we needed to get knocked down a peg or two and realize nothing is going to be given to us. At the end of the day, I don’t feel like our guys are that way. I feel like we grinded ’til the end and we came up one run short.”
