BOSTON – There’s a running office joke around Wrigley Field whenever the Cubs kick around a new idea: When did the Red Sox start doing that?
It's not even July and Jeff Samardzija has seemingly been through it all already this season.
The Cubs couldn’t touch Brandon Cumpton on Sunday. And when he finally came out of the game, the Cubs couldn’t capitalize.
They say hitting is contagious.
And if that’s the case, it’s got to start somewhere.
There is a quiet confidence brewing the Cubs’ clubhouse, which might seem surprising given their sub-par record.
