Zobrist’s team first attitude is rubbing off in the club house, says Maddon:
Cubs manager Joe Maddon likens Ben Zobrist to a virus. The best possible kind.
His winning attitude is infectious.
“You see it. You’re all around him,” Maddon told reporters before Friday’s 1:20 p.m. game against the Nationals. “Everybody else sees it, too, especially the young guys. So there’s a residual positive impact just from being around him.
“It is hard to quantify. He is this thing that spreads – almost like a good virus.”
