The Cubs lost their second very big game in a row on Tuesday night when a backup catcher, with 32 hits on the season, came through with a clutch two out RBI base hit in 13th inning. According to Jon Lester, the loss could be a good thing for the Cubs.
Here is Jon Lester's full dick-in-the-dirt quote: “Sometimes you need to get your dick knocked in the dirt in order to appreciate where you’re at. You know what? Maybe we needed that. Maybe we needed to get knocked down a peg or two to realize nothing’s going to be given to us.”

That’s an all-time quote from the left-hander. It sounds like the Cubs might have taken the Rockies lightly and you absolutely can’t do that unless you want to watch the rest of the postseason from your couch.
