The Cubs, much like last year, seem surrounded by paranoia (self destroyah') and rumors. They haven't sprinted out of the gate as they did in '16--which they will seemingly be measured against from here on out--and hence there a good sized section of the fanbase that's in a tizzy. 25-6 doesn't happen every season. Look no farther than the Dodgers for proof. And while I'm sure most players avoid reading websites and listening to the radio, they probably can't help but notice what the reporters who are with them every day keep asking about. And given the size of the Cubs media contingent, it would be impossible to ignore. And the reaction of the fans during the game must play a role as well...
There were rumblings that some roster machinations coming for the Cubs. The veteran minor league deal was used widely throughout baseball.

You ever wake up on Monday and say to yourself, “Wait a minute, what the hell just happened? Wasn’t it just Friday?” Well, that happened to me. I honestly don’t know where the weekend went. It wasn’t like I had this wild, party-induced weekend. No, I really didn’t do much of anything. But, like a... Read more »
These days, I go to Cubs games as much for the theater as the baseball. I'm constantly seeking out moments or exhibitions of uniqueness. It's kind of why I became a wrestling fan again. All eyes focused on one individual, and what they come up with so easily on that stage. That's kind of it, the field as a stage. And the performance...
