Cubs Retweet: Pitching The Offense

Don't look now, but the Cubs' offense is cold again in the playoffs - except for the pitchers, who are providing the power. Good thing, too, because Jake Arrieta's 3-run homer last night may temporarily helps us forget that he's become a true concern going forward (as is Hector Rondon).

Meanwhile, Joe Maddon - at least temporarily - lost his Midas touch with a series of moves he's getting uncharacteristically roasted for today. (Though some of the criticism is way off-base: Mike Mulligan sounded like he just arrived on Earth this morning complaining on The Score that Maddon should just stick with a winning lineup. Have you watched the Cubs at all this year, Mully?)

Anyway, this is how we get to a Game 5 at Wrigley on Thursday: The Giants win tonight and we're back to Lester-Cueto, and let's face it, as good as Lester was in Game 1, Cueto was actually better. Thank God for Javy Baez!

Now, to the best Twitter commentary from Game 3 and looking ahead to tonight's game:
