MESA, Ariz. – The Cubs need Theo Epstein to be the face of their rebuilding franchise. No one else could have overseen a total teardown and made the same arguments for patience.
GOODYEAR, Ariz. – The Cubs tried to spin it as a positive development: Scott Baker’s season isn’t already over.
TUCSON, Ariz. – One through 12, the Cubs thought their pitching staff could be a strength, an X-factor if they are going to surprise people in another season of low expectations.
