Chicago Cubs Roundtable: Are The Cubs World Series Ready?

Joe WillettSenior Writer IJune 6, 2008

Sam: The Cubs need one more proven starter and one more veteran bullpen pitcher to sustain their success.  Health will play a major role in determining how much movement is required, but as of now, I don't see them making many changes simply because this team was built with pitching depth before the season began.  If you have to, why not call up a young player like Kevin Hart, who emerged as a quality bullpen arm last season despite being a rookie.



Bob W: 93-69, 1st place in the NL Central.


Tyler: I think the Cubs will win the NL Central, finish with the best record in baseball with about 95 wins, make the World Series and beat the Red Sox in 6 games.  How is that for a prediction?  This team is too good not to end me, my grandpa, and great grand parent's misery. 


Joe: Somewhere in the mid-90’s in wins.  Maybe 96-66, 1st in the NL Central for sure.

That's all for now, hope you enjoyed the first Chicago Cubs Roundtable.

I'm Joe W.
