Last quote by Theo Epstein

They manipulate the baseball differently. Jon cuts the ball more than Quintana does. They are pretty good comps. They're right next to each other for most valuable pitchers the last three, four years.feedback

Jun 30 2017

It doesn't always happen. You could be striving for an identity all year and not find it. We need to find it, and I think we will.feedback

Jun 30 2017

It's around the corner, but we need to do what we can to prioritize it. It has not come as naturally for us this year, and we need to make it happen.feedback

Jun 30 2017

I don't think we've established our identity yet. I don't think we've found our edge, yet. Wins don't just happen because you're talented and you show up. You have to come to the park every day and come together as a team every day.feedback

Jun 22 2017

We reached a point recently where the fundamental side, it was really tough. You reach a point where you're just trying to survive. It's not atypical for players to change their environment to rediscover who they are.feedback

Jun 08 2017

It's a very serious allegation, and it's something we had to deal with immediately.feedback

Jun 08 2017

I think we have great clubhouse chemistry, but real life happens all the time. Sometimes, it reaches the light of day. And sometimes, it doesn't. Serious situations come up throughout the course of the season. Right now, we're dealing with a very serious allegation.feedback

May 18 2017

It's not going to last, at all. What it tells me is we're going to have five or six guys get hot at the same time.feedback

May 16 2017

If people want to sell low on the Cubs, sell their stock, we'll buy. We still really believe in this team. We know how good we can and will be when we get it locked in.feedback

May 16 2017

He hasn't locked in his delivery yet. When he does things will be different.feedback

May 16 2017

There's no panic but there's a lot of guys that care about playing up to our capabilities. You never know where the bottom is or what catalytic event is going to be that turns things around.feedback

May 16 2017

When we feel like it's the right thing for him and the team. He's going to have tremendous production by the end of the year. He's going to have a lot of big hits to help us win games. [This slump] just means there's a lot of hits out there for the rest of the year.feedback

May 16 2017

He hasn't gotten on track yet but we have no doubts that he will. If anyone wants to sell their Kyle Schwarber stock, we're buying. Right around this time last year we were 25-6 and I was getting asked non-sarcastic questions about how we were going to manage the push for the greatest record of all time versus resting guys for the playoffs and I called B.S. on that and now I'm getting asked if we're going to send everyday guys down to Triple A ... or if we're going to consider selling. I call B.S. on that too. I'm not blind to what's gone on but you also have to trust in what you believe.feedback

May 16 2017

Like Schwarber, if people want to sell low on the Cubs we'll buy. The season is 162 games for a reason. It tends to be a meritocracy over 162.feedback

May 16 2017

There is no lack of urgency, there is no complacency because we won last year. There's just frustration because we haven't gotten there. There's no panic.feedback

Apr 29 2017

You come to a place with this kind of history, this kind of ballpark, these kind of passionate fans – it enhances the entire experience. People care more. The wins and losses matter more. You know people are talking about what happened in the eighth inning at the dinner table along with: 'Hey, how was your day at school? How was your day at work?'. I don't know if I could go anywhere else, a run-of-the-mill baseball market, and work, because it would probably feel like work. In Boston and Chicago, it doesn't feel like work.feedback

Apr 29 2017

I've been looking forward to coming back. The fact that we won – obviously it feels good. It feels nice to the extent that it kind of validates my decision to try a new challenge a little bit and it wasn't a foolish thing to leave. That part feels good, but I'd be happy coming back here under any circumstances.feedback

Apr 11 2017

They say all glory is fleeting, and it is, but the flag will fly forever and that feeling of being part of something bigger than ourselves will last forever too. That's what it symbolizes.feedback

Apr 11 2017

The best part about last year was we all got to be part of something bigger than ourselves. Feel connected to each other and the fans and the organization and the city and you know, they say all glory is fleeting, and it is, but the flag will fly forever and that feeling of being part of something bigger than ourselves will last forever, too. I think, to me, that's what it symbolizes.feedback

Mar 30 2017

We feel Albert Almora has a real bright future, and we want to give him some room to grow in the big leagues, and we've protected him a little bit with Jon Jay. The two of those guys complementing each other will help us win.feedback

Mar 30 2017

It's really hard to win a World Series, period, and it doesn't put you in a great position to do it again, either, having pitched for seven months the previous year. It's just a hard thing to do. The key is just putting a great team on the field year after year and giving yourself an opportunity as often as possible.feedback

Feb 09 2017

I think you gain sort of an inner confidence, a default belief that you and your teammates know how to win and through hard times you just have a faith in getting back to what got you there, knowing that you're good enough not only to compete, but to win, and to win the whole thing. That kind of confidence is hard to create.feedback

Jan 24 2017

It was clear we had to start anew.feedback

Jan 24 2017

The hard work of turning around a franchise really began at that level.feedback

Dec 25 2016

We enjoyed some warm goat and cold beer. It was a nice way to celebrate and flush the whole curse narrative once and for all.feedback

Dec 25 2016

The players-only meeting during the rain delay was emblematic of this team. Instead of lamenting the blown lead or pointing fingers, the players rallied around one another and picked each other up.feedback

Dec 25 2016

I think a lot of casual fans were initially drawn to the Cubs in the postseason because of the 108-year drought and the curse narrative. But when they tuned in, they saw a talented team full of young, exciting players who are also team-first, high-character people.feedback

Nov 03 2016

We don't need a plane to fly home. It's fitting it's got to be done with one of the best games of all time.feedback

Oct 27 2016

Of course we're all disappointed. We'd love to see him get 4-plus at-bats.feedback

Oct 27 2016

They're the professionals here and move forward. Kyle understands that. He wants to play, he's the ultimate gamer, but he understands that the doctor's judgment has to rule the day in this case.feedback

Oct 27 2016

There was too much risk.feedback

Oct 22 2016

We'll just continue to evaluate him medically day by day in terms of baseball readiness. We have a lot of business we need to take care of first before there's any relevance to it short term. But long term it's a great prognosis for him and we're proud of him that he's worked so hard to get to this point.feedback

Oct 22 2016

We got the best possible report. It exceeded any reasonable expectation that we had. We basically got the news at six months that we had hoped to get at seven months, which was Dr. Cooper upon examining him cleared him to run the bases. Kyle called me right away and asked for a chance to get ready. The doctors greenlighted him to start hitting.feedback
