Many problems surfaced on the field with the Cubs in recent years due to clubhouse behavior.
Whether it was Carlos Zambrano, or Carlos Zambrano or Carlos Zambrano, there always seemed to be some sort of problem.
During the stretch of a 162-game schedule, times get tough. There will be plenty of times that the club will face adversity, especially during struggling times that the Cubs have faced lately.
Some players have been accused of lacking effort such as Soriano. Some players struggle to stay in shape throughout the year, such as Geovany Soto. And some people have just been a straight pain, such as Zambrano or Milton Bradley.
Garza is the polar opposite. On games when he isn't pitching, he's also spotted by camera crews standing on the top step of the dugout turning into more of a cheerleader than a baseball player.
His fiery competitive attitude is something that positively affects the other 24 guys. With a mix of young and old, rookies and aging veterans, and projects and busts, Garza is a guy that can contribute to keeping the clubhouse a place the players enjoy giving the Cubs one less thing to worry about.
And there are plenty of things that the Cubs need to worry about more than babysitting a clubhouse.
