Cubs react to canceled games: ‘Manfred gotta go'


Player reactions are flooding in after MLB commissioner Rob Manfred announced Tuesday the cancelation of regular season games due to the league-implemented lockout.

MLB canceled the first two series of the season after its self-imposed deadline for a new labor agreement passed without a deal with the players union. Union leaders voted unanimously to reject the league's last offer.

Starter Marcus Stroman, outfielder Ian Happ and catcher Willson Contreras were among the Cubs who took to social media to react to the news.

Outfielder Clint Frazier also posted a tweet as the day's news unfolded. 

From ex-Cub Anthony Rizzo:

The regular season now will start no sooner than April 8, though whether the league cancels more games remains to be seen.
