Theo also addressed the Cubs' pitching issues, something that has been a subject of some debate here. He said the expectations were that the starting pitching would be a major strength, a strength that would "separate" the Cubs from other teams, but that this did not prove to be the case. And he noted that the Cubs were particularly poor in high leverage situations, saying that having an overall very good ERA did not matter that much if there was a weakness in high leverage situations.  He did praise some the relief pitchers who utilized the research and development resources to become more effective.
