Cubs

Theo Epstein isn't positive he's making the right decision with Kris Bryant, but 13 years of experience and two World Series rings has him confident he's making a smart baseball decision.
Theo Epstein said it's easy to distinguish between the situations Javier Baez and Kris Bryant find themselves in this season despite it looking like Bryant, not Baez, still start the year at Triple-A.
It was just a minor league scrimmage, but the intensity was there for Jon Lester, who is trying to overcome a bout of dead arm en route to his Opening Night start and Wrigley Field debut.
