The Cubs allowed the Nationals to steal seven bases on Tuesday. Catcher Miguel Montero and his noodle arm were none too happy about it.

There’s just one big problem with Montero’s complaint. He’s had tons of other bad nights and was terrible in this statistical category in 2016, seeing his playing time decline rapidly with Willson Contreras’ call-up and David Ross’ going-out party.
Miguel Montero is 1 for 31 catching base-stealers this season. https://t.co/vyfOBCt0r0

This is a catcher nearing the end of his big league time with zero accountability. His critical comments of Arrieta and the rest of the pitching staff after criticizing manager Joe Maddon shortly after the World Series aren’t going to have too many people in the front office or the locker room pleased.
