The Central Dispatch: 5-8-18

The Brewers had the day off, the Cubs beat up on the Marlins and the Twins did the dirty to St. Louis! The Red Birds stay in first followed by Milwaukee, Pittsburgh and Chicago. In the AL, the Twins gain a half game on the Indians but stay in second. Now is the time in baseball when pitchers start having phantom injuries. I mean, the Brewers shipped Oliver Drake to Cleveland for straight cash, homey, and the Cubs sent Yu Darvish to the DL with a 10 day illness. Really? An illness? Must be a helluva case of “Cant-Pitch-Itus” sweeping through the Darvish home these days.
