The Chicago Cubs are off to a bad start in the 2019 season, and many are looking for a scapegoat. Theo Epstein says to put it all on him.
The Cubs entered Saturday’s game 1-6. Their offense has been good enough, but their pitching has been brutal. Their 59 runs allowed is the third-worst in the league, ahead of only Arizona and, ironically, last year’s World Series champs, the Red Sox.
Epstein spoke with the media Saturday and said you shouldn’t blame pitching coach Tommy Hottovy or owner Tom Ricketts, but rather him.
