HAZLETON, Pa. – Pressure?
This isn’t the NBA, so the Cubs didn’t have to put the full-court press on once the free-agent marketplace opened on Friday at 11 p.m. Chicago time.
Joe Maddon kept telling Dexter Fowler: You go, we go. And the Cubs went all the way to the National League Championship Series.
He didn’t issue any Arrieta-esque challenges but Jason Heyward isn’t intimidated by the rock concert at Wrigley, either.
Starlin Castro waited so long to see Wrigley Field rocking like this, growing up inside the fishbowl and hoping to be on a Cubs team that finally played meaningful games.
