I’ve been thinking about this issue quite a bit lately. “Chemistry” is a word that one usually hears thrown around by fans of struggling teams. It seems, to me, like a convenient factor to point to when looking for reasons to blame for failures. What do we really know about “chemistry” as it relates to professional baseball?
A lot happened this weekend for the Cubs, and most of it was’t good. The highlight was a deplorable decision in Sunday’s game by home plate umpire, Phil Cuzzi. Truly one of the worst calls you’ll ever see.
