Joe Maddon and the Cubs are going for it.
There's no more grace period with regards to development, no more preaching patience with guys who are underperforming.
Joe Maddon managed like the Cubs are already in the playoffs.
Kris Bryant had already crushed a Felix Hernandez changeup in the first inning when he homered a second time against the Seattle Mariners.
As the Cubs lose patience with Starlin Castro, they don’t seem to be in a hurry to promote Javier Baez from Triple-A Iowa.
