Like Don Quixote charging at windmills, so was Henry Blanco last night in Milwaukee. Despite homering for the only Cubs run, wiping a pair of potential Brewers’ runs off the board with incredible tags at home plate and throwing out the only man who dared to try and steal a base against him, Hank White wasn’t enough as the Cubs fell to 12-13 on the season with a 4-1 loss to Milwaukee.
The Cubs have shown a disturbing tendency to turn the offense over to Henry for him to carry by himself. He’s only one man. And a sleepy one at that.
The Cubs are now 4-2 in Hank’s starts, but 0-2 when he gets a hit. Hank has promised to not get a hit the rest of the year, feeling that it will guarantee the Cubs go undefeated when he catches from now on.
