|Epstein Works to Install "Cubs Way" This Spring
|MESA, Ariz. (AP) -- Theo Epstein and his supporting cast in Chicago are busy installing the ''Cubs Way'' with his new team. Don't ask him to explain it in a few words, either. It's not that simple for the former Boston Red Sox executive hired to guide the Cubs out of their role as baseball's loveable losers.
Epstein says there were ''outstanding'' organizational meetings in Arizona this week to develop the specifics of what the ''Cubs Way'' will be. He says it will amount to few hundred pages.
As the new Cubs president for baseball operations put it: ''Playing hard is a big part of it but playing the game the right way and teaching it consistently are as well.''
Pitchers and catchers reported to the team's spring training facility in Mesa on Saturday.
