AFTER LAST YEAR'S AMAZING SUCCESS, HOW IS THIS HOME OPENER GOING TO FEEL?
“It's going to be amazing. There's always excitement in Wrigley Field but it seems like there's even more this year. We're all excited for the home opener, no matter how cold it is!”
WHEN YOU'RE ON THE ROAD, HOW DO CUBS FANS BRING THAT WRIGLEY FIELD EXPERIENCE TO AWAY GAMES?
“Last year I couldn't believe how many Cubs fans were on the road with us. It really makes some of those games a lot easier for us. At times it's almost as if we are playing at home, and that's an awesome feeling.”
WE HEAR YOU HAVE QUITE THE BROMANCE WITH ANTHONY RIZZO.
TELL US ABOUT #BRYZZO
“I'm not really sure when the whole Bryzzo thing started but we kind of ran with it. Just going back to my first spring training he was really one of those guys that took me under his wing and showed me the way. He's a great teammate and someone that a lot of us on the team look up to.”
SO, JOE MADDON IS SERIOUS FUN. WHAT WAS THE HIGHLIGHT FOR YOU FROM LAST YEAR? AND, WHAT DO YOU THINK HE HAS UP HIS SLEEVE FOR THIS YEAR?
“You never know what to expect with Joe! I think my favorite thing last year was dressing up in onesies on the way home from LA. Not many managers do those types of things and I think that's what makes him a guy that all of us love playing for. I don't know what's up his sleeve this year but I know he'll have something planned for us.”
