Chicago Cubs: 2013 Scouting Report, Roster Breakdown and Prediction

The 2012 season for the Chicago Cubs was as disastrous as we all thought. It was actually two games worse than either I thought or hoped. I'm not sure where reality lies, so it's a distinct possibility that my heart's wishes clouded my brain's logic in thinking they would not lose 100 games.

They did. I'm sadder for it.

I do believe the Cubs are moving in the right direction. I think the young team of Theo Epstein and Jed Hoyer are exactly what we need. An infusion of young energy is a welcomed change from the stuffy atmosphere that's been plaguing us for years.

2013 is a litmus test for us. We need to make the moves necessary, as well as walking away from the unnecessary ones, in order to be successful—or at least exciting and fun to watch.

I expect the Cubs 2013 season to be like a high wire act: You simply can't look away. Everything could be just fine, or it could spiral out of control in a most spectacular fashion.
