Cubs announce 2018 team slogan

Chicago Cubs announced via Twitter earlier this week that this year’s team slogan is “Everybody In.”
"Our roster is millions deep," the team posted. "It's the collective power and passion of our remarkable players and loyal fans." #EverybodyIn
Joe Maddon thinks the slogan fits well with what he wants to accomplish this season.
“I think it’s a great slogan and I think it’s easy to attach to,” Maddon said. “After all, we’re all trying to be this altruistic team person that puts the group ahead of the individual and I think that’s pretty much what it’s talking about.”
Maddon knows baseball is a long season and hopes that his team shows up every day ready to work with good energy.
“We are going to do all of our work,” Maddon said. “They are all hard workers. Beyond all that, I want them to be concerned on a daily basis about their enthusiasm and energy. If we can understand showing up mentally every day with a lot of energy and life, that will let us get off to a good start. Energy, enthusiasm and execution — it’s the same stuff (I always preach), but I am trying to present it in a different way. This is my fourth year doing it here. You never want the message to grow old. The essence of getting to a point across is to be able to say the same things in different words.”
My all-time favorite Cubs saying was "Try not to suck" but this new 2018 slogan is not bad either.
