Chicago Cubs: Changes Cubbies Must Make to Become Legit

With June and the All-Star break approaching, the North Siders haven't reached a better time to capitalize on the much weaker NL Central.  

After losing $200 million superstars Albert Pujols and Prince Fielder to the hitter-friendly American League, the declining NL Central still houses likely All-Stars Joey Votto, Ryan Braun, Carlos Beltran and Andrew McCutchen, among many others.

However, the Cubs have a legitimate chance of coming back in the standings this season. 

Headed into Tuesday's matchup against the St. Louis Cardinals, here are the changes most important to long-term success for the Cubs.
