The offense is smelling like 2011 again. We all had complaints on how the offense would score a bunch and then disappear in 2011. The difference is the pitching is much better....so that will save them on most nights.
If Votto lays off that last pitch...I wonder if Ump Magoo calls it a strike anyways?
The Cubs starting pitching is a strength at this stage. I would say that is the biggest cause of the disappearing offense. The v.2011 and v. 2013 offense are very different in their makeup, so probably not a good comparison at this stage of the season.
