The Cubs are definitely locked and loaded for the 2009 season.
The trade for Aaron Heilman just adds to the Cubs' already loaded pitching staff.
I know you may be thinking: how can they be loaded?
Look at their rotation; filled with four starters that would be No. 1 starters on any other team: Zambrano, Dempster, Lilly and Harden.
The looming trade for former Cy Young winner, Jake Peavy, will just add to the stacked Cubs staff and they have been a big disappointment in the past two seasons, but with a stacked staff like this, they are hard to go against.
Expect a big run from the Cubs in 2009 with the addition of their new faces.
