4/19 Time for a chat
Cubs manager Rick Renteria did talk to the players after Friday’s game, and said it’s part of an on-going process of communication.
“Yesterday, we had a talk with everybody to talk about the same things we’ve talked about since spring — it takes a lot of focus and intensity and commitment to have a chance to win,” Renteria said Saturday. “And not even a guarantee, just a chance [to win]. Winning is not an accident, it is a process and something you can put together with different means.”
Renteria was not happy with what he called “sloppy” play by the Cubs in the 4-1 loss to the Reds.
