When Theo Epstein decided to change the Cub’s culture and put out a plan for The Cub’s Way, suddenly, the team is looking good with back to back wins. The difference with these wins though is that one was a come from behind and the other was from a walk off heroes in Justin Ruggiano and Arismendy Alcantara. Could he be this year’s Yusiel Puig? Hmmn?
“Any player, when they impact you and show you what they have, I think the easiest thing to do is for people to start to speculate if he will stick around,” Rick Renteria said, while noting Alcantara will likely play center field on Saturday.
I hate the Braves. Don’t know what the reason is, but there’s something about that team that just doesn’t sit right with me. I’ll cheer on the Yankees before I cheer on the Braves. This win was great because of that but also because the Cubs are eleven back and ten back in the Wild Card Race. Unlikely for the post season, but hell, the Cubs have two All Stars and that is awesome.
Yes, there is definitely a winning culture spreading in Chicago.
