The Cubs have insisted over and over again they're feeling good at the plate, even if the results haven't been there.
Six games into the season, new Cubs manager Rick Renteria has yet to use the same lineup twice.
But there has been one constant: Emilio Bonifacio is the leadoff hitter.
Carlos Marmol has a new team.
The ex-Cubs closer signed a one-year deal with the Marlins on Thursday, according to a report.
The Cubs avoided arbitration with another player Wednesday by agreeing to terms on a one-year deal worth $2 million with outfielder Justin Ruggiano.
The Cubs appealed to the ego, telling Anibal Sanchez he would be their primary building block – and not just another guy behind Justin Verlander and Max Scherzer with the Detroit Tigers.
