Keep Calm and Carry On was already taken.---Jim Litke is a sports columnist for The Asso from 123's blog

occasionally a late-inning replacement -- he never hesitated.We have a lot of good athletes that can move around and play different positions. I feel really comfortable throwing to any of these guys all year and believe me, I had some really crappy throws to first, Ross chuckled. But theyve picked me up all year long.On this night Baez did it again. He snared the throw alongside the bag and made a swipe tag as Gillaspie dove back to first.Obviously I wasnt expecting that, Gillaspie said evenly, but I mean, we were trying to create a throw over there or trying to get something stirred up to create an opportunity for ourselves.Its smart, he conceded a moment later. Its good play.It also a play that more than a few Cubs had never seen until they began playing for Maddon.Never, All-Star third-baseman Kris Bryant confirmed. Joes certainly an out-of-the-box thinker. If it was me in the batters box and I saw Rizzo standing 20 feet away from me, Im not sure what Id be thinking.All Maddon asks is that they continue to think. One-run games are more about luck than the measure of a team, but the manager wants them ready to respond, whatever the situation. So he might start Bryant in the outfield, have one of his bullpen pitchers play there late in a game or simply make a pass through the dugout in a tight game repeating mantras like Focus on process or Try not to suck, a catchphrase he went so far as to print on T-shirts that have become all the rage in the city.Too bad Keep Calm and Carry On was already taken.---Jim Litke is a sports columnist for The Associated Press.
