Chicago Cubs: Talking the talk, walking the walk

The on-field Cubs product in 2018 has been pretty darned good, despite many fans and league insiders struggling a bit with what can only be defined as inconsistency.

Yes, the team has hovered at around .500 since the break, which is not ideal. But keep it in perspective. The Cubs lead the NL in winning percentage, batting average, runs per game and run differential. All this without their best player, Kris Bryant, for a substantial stretch of games. Regardless of anxiety levels and overanxious fans who don’t want to sweat out another September, the needle is pointing up.

All this is to say simply that the Cubs have embraced their mantra. Everybody most definitely is “in”. The team has bought into the concept. They’ve received contributions and key plays from every man on their roster and the recent roster additions all seem to walk the talk as well.

As for the fans, this catchphrase couldn’t be more on point.
