Cubs Players Got Together to Discuss With Each Other Acceptable and Unacceptable Behavior

Chicago Cubs

It will require approximately a thousand things to go right for this season to be pulled off safely, and not all of them are within the control of MLB, its teams, its management, or its players.

But among the things that are at least partially within the players’ control, I’m very glad to hear that the Cubs have explicitly gotten together to talk about what they need to do for each other:

I won’t be so crass as to talk about health and safety from the pandemic being a competitive advantage, but I will say that yes, of course, teams that find a way to better adhere to the safety protocols will stand a better chance of completing this season with as many players unaffected as possible. What the players do directly impacts each other (and their families), so it is critical not only that they do the “right” things, but also that they are on the same page about what – realistically – are the “right” things.

This group truly cares about each other, and one thing the organization has done very well is creating an environment of caring about families, too. Hopefully, that helps – as much as possible – keep the players, the coaches, the personnel, and their families safe this year.
