Cubs fans, is this going to be the year?

For some reason, I am not as excited going into this year as I have been in the last two. I don't know if it's from the big roster changes (Kerry Wood, and Mark DeRosa), or what, but things don't seem right.

I eat, breathe, and sleep the Cubs, and I still don't know if I'm ready for Opening Day. I do think that this off-season has gone by very quickly, so maybe that's the reason...I don't know.

I think we have a really strong team, and I just hope that "this is the year".
