Chicago Cubs: Find a way – make it happen
Really, there’s nothing more to say than what Lester mentioned Wednesday.
"“All you got to do is get in,” Lester said. “It doesn’t matter how the season looks, what everybody’s stats are. Whether you limp in or you sprint in, it doesn’t matter. You get in, anybody has a chance. I’ve always been a big believer in that. And there’s been a lot of teams over the years that have proven that.”"
This year’s Chicago Cubs team is not the same one that won it all. Sure, the main pieces are all still in-place. But it’s different. Don’t compare the two clubs – it won’t get you anywhere.
Accept this team’s faults. Just because the team hasn’t clinched the Central with weeks to go doesn’t mean anything about October. Like Lester said: “All you got to do is get in.”
