* Jesse Rogers, ESPN Chicago:

The front office and manager Joe Maddon both agree that drafting or acquiring guys that were good at getting on was the way to go instead of trying to change players who weren't inclined to take walks. They've said as much many times throughout the years. It's not really a teachable thing.

Free agency wasn't much of an option at the time, so drafting and trading for on-base guys was the way to go. Kris Bryant fit the description for a power hitter, as did Kyle Schwarber, but so did little-known infielder Tommy La Stella. He's a great example of the Cubs "putting their money where their mouth was."
