A Season To Look Forward To

Joe HastenContributor IOctober 20, 2016

Cub fans, don't feel too bad. True we have been saying that we will win the World Series next year for 100 years, but we have something special to look forward to this year.

Last year the Cubs flew in to the playoffs with flying colors. The best team in the NL, and hosting the Dodgers. We had the best pitching rotation in baseball, and our hitting was superb.

This year, not much has changed. We still have Soriano, Ramirez, and Lee as our major hitters. The starting rotation is still among the best in the league.

Really, we have only gone up since last year. Now we will have even better hitting with the accusation of Bradley, and the pitching barely changed. True Wood left, but the Cub bullpen is always weak.

Also, Wrigley is still Wrigley. It is a great ballpark and an unbelievable atmosphere to watch a game. The fans may be downtrodden, but if things pick up and the Cubs win some games, Wrigley will only be better than before.

Hopefully this season the Cubs can win 90+ games and make the playoffs. The real issue is in the playoffs, where if they win one game in the first series, they have acheived better than the past two years. No pressure Cubs!

Go Cubs Go!

Go Cubs Go!
