Quick Pre-Game Hits: Epstein Staying, KB and Javy Sitting, Regulars Resting, Maddon Status Mumming

Chicago Cubs

Some pre-game briefing notes from the Cubs’ men in charge, more or less aligning with all you would have guessed in any case.

Theo Epstein says he’s staying, Joe Maddon says Kris Bryant and Javy Baez aren’t playing, other regulars are going to get rest soon, and no one is gonna say boo about Maddon’s job status for now:

More on Epstein’s and Maddon’s comments coming later, but I am doing some solo parenting through the early part of the game. Didn’t want to leave folks hanging on this stuff in the interim.
