Cubs pitcher Jon Lester has well documented issues throwing the ball to first base.  He’s tried several methods to cure himself, including a bounce pass to the base. 

On Monday night he picked a runner off of first base and did so by throwing it to first baseman Anthony Rizzo.  Mets infielder Amed Rosario took a 20 foot lead and found out the hard way that Lester’s yips might be cured.

Who knew a professional baseball player, who gets paid a lot of money to throw a baseball, would get attention for throwing the ball to a base?  It was big news for Cubs fans.
