During the winter, the Cubs front office talked extensively about player leadership and the need for more of it in the clubhouse. Jon Lester got the message: “I think they made it clear to everybody. I read the stuff too. They hit the nail on the head...I think we cleared the air on a lot of things this off-season with certain things, as far as the front office to players, kind of understanding our roles a little bit more. Sometimes you need to do that, you need to sit down and go face-to-face and talk about what the expectations are. I think we're in a good place. I think everyone is comfortable with who they are and what is expected of them. Now we can just get back to work.”
