Growing up a Cubs fan, I have been used to heartbreaking baseball. It seemed like every year I would always say, “there’s always next year.” Well, I am glad to say that next year is NOW.
I had the opportunity to go to the last two home Spring Training games in Arizona, and the Cubbies were impressive. They were fantastic last year and are thankfully returning with the same core of great players. With the addition of Jason Heyward, John Lackey, and Ben Zobrist to the roster, the Chicago Cubs are truly a force to be reckoned with. Losing Kyle Schwarber for the year to an ACL and MCL tear definitely hurts, but the Cubs are the definition of deep. Jorge Soler will take over in right field, and the Cubs will be poised for a World Series run. Having the Cub’s hitters along with Arrieta, Lackey, and Lester on the mound. the rest of the MLB should watch out. I am ready for my Cubbies to reverse the curse and FINALLY win a World Series for the best fans in baseball.
GO CUBS GO!
