OSS: It's the Javy Baez show.
1. Javy Baez walked 3 times, scored from 1st on an error, and was generally awesome. He had a rough go of the first series of the year, so it's nice to see him with his first-ever 3 walk game.
2. Jon Lester was really good tonight (Ron Coomer's player of the game), rebounding from his Opening Day start with 6 innings of 1-walk, 3-hit, no run ball. Lester even threw out a steal "attempt" by Bryan Raun in the first innings. Man, I hate that guy.
3. Willson Contreras was on every single ball threw at him tonight. Even his out was a scorcher. It was great to see.
1. Anthony Rizzo is probably fine, but he sure has been awful so far this year. Today he was 0-5 with a strikeout.
2. Ian Happ had a single and scored a run, so it wasn't all miserable, but he also went 1-6 with 4 SO so he clearly needs to fix some holes.
3. I just…want…to punch…Ryan Braun. What a smug face.
