The Cubs and OBP

Interesting article about OBP and the Cubs focusing on Mark Bellhorn. It echoes what many of us have been saying for several years, the Cubs just don't get it when it comes to getting guys on base.

"The Cubs finished 11th in the NL in team on-base percentage. Despite a great starting-pitching rotation, they failed down the stretch largely because they didn't score runs, even against the bottom-feeding Mets and Reds. You can blame fatigue, but you also can blame bad approaches at the plate, including too much first-pitch swinging and swinging at bad pitches."

The author also dredges up Dusty's quote on walks "clogging" up the bases that I've referred to several times.
