Cubs have struck out NL-record 58 times through 1st 5 games

Here is my first whinny post of the season. The Cubs have struck out a NL-record 58 times through 1st 5 games. Who are the strike-out problem players? Heyward. nope. Schwarber. Wrong. Happ for 8 strike-outs, Contreras for 8, and Rizzo for 6. Rest of the hitters for 5 SOs each. Worse, the Cubs have been blanked twice in those five games by sub-par teams. You can't win games if the lead off hitter (Happ) can't get on base, even by a walk.
