Anthony Rizzo is the unquestioned leader of the 2015 Cubs. As such, it’s become his responsibility to help make sure everyone is ready for the big moments.
That includes the fans.
Sunday, Rizzo spoke with the media after practice. The All-Star first baseman said he has high hopes for Cubs fans and the noise level for the next two games in Chicago.
He then challenged Cubs fans to live up to the high standard he heard to start the postseason.
#Cubs Riz: "I can't wait to see how loud it is. I want to see if we can be louder than it was in Pittsburgh because that was unbelievable."

Wrigley Field will undoubtedly be loud when the Cubs take the field. But challenging the fans and using a division rival as the bar-setter could take things to a next level.
Noticeably left out of the conversation was the Cardinals fan base. Rizzo made no mention of how loud it was in St. Louis during the first two games of the series.
