During the Cubs’ 3-0 loss to the Washington Nationals, Chicago broadcaster Len Kasper said he thinks Jon Lester has too good of a swing to have never recorded a major league hit.
ESPN baseball analyst Buster Olney agrees with Kasper and thinks one day this summer Kasper will call a Lester home run.
Agree, @LenKasper: Jon Lester's got too good of a swing for a career 0-fer.— Buster Olney (@Buster_ESPN) May 28, 2015
@LenKasper Only a matter of time. You will call a Lester HR this summer.— Buster Olney (@Buster_ESPN) May 28, 2015
Lester was 0-for-2 against the Nationals with one strike out and continued his 0-for-59 career hitless streak.
On Thursday, Kasper said on 670 The Score he thought Ted Lilly, who was able to record 35 hits in his career, had a worse swing than Lester and found ways to get hits.
Lester will get his next opportunity to break his hitless streak against the Miami Marlins on June 2.
