In fact, Matt Garza seemed a little chapped at that commercial poking fun at the Cubs’ 103-year-old drought. It showed realistic images of a Cubs championship celebration only to reveal in the end that it was just a video game.
‘‘I just want to get the thing going,’’ Garza said. ‘‘PlayStation made fun of us the other day with their commercial with the Cubs fan crying. But there’s special stuff going on in here, man. You never know. This s—- could be reality pretty soon.’’
...Much of this roster is the same as the one that finished in fifth place last year. But a few understated changes might matter, as well as changes in the players’ attitude and accountability.
‘‘As much as anything, we’ve addressed being held accountable on the defensive end of everything,’’ manager Dale Sveum said. ‘‘When something happens on the field, it’s taken care of right when they get off the field. Some people say, ‘Well, I’ll take care of it after the game.’ Well, what if there’s six innings left and it happens again?’’
...‘‘There’s a pretty good feeling here,’’ Garza said. ‘‘I can’t wait to get this thing kicked off and get going.’’
