“The Cubs Way” Notes


Embedded below are my notes from Tom Verducci’s excellent book on the 2016 World Series champion Chicago Cubs. “The Cubs Way” is one of my favorite books I’ve read in the last year. Joe Maddon and Theo Epstein are two of my favorites to study in the game of baseball and Verducci offers a great portrait of both. Great stuff in here on the role character played in the Cubs’ drafting, Maddon’s in-game reminders to himself, and how Epstein went about changing the culture of a losing club.
