As if losing Kyle Schwarber wasn’t painful enough, he’s now in the midst of one of the greatest home run streaks in the history of the game.
Schwarbs has clubbed a total of 24 HR’s so far this season, 4th best in MLB. His 15 HR in his last 17 games has only been duplicated by Barry Bonds and former Cubs icon Sammy Sosa. Yea, it hurts. It does. They ghosted him for Joc Pederson. I’m not saying Joc isn’t a good player, but Kyle was the heart of the club, the glue that kept it together, the straw the stirred the drink.
