Chicago Cubs

I’m in the mood for pizza and I’m a sucker for deep dish so let’s go to Chicago. ‘Go Cubs Go’ am I right? No? Okay, cool. The Chicago Cubs, like last year are off to a rough start. It’s been two years since they made history and won the World Series but it still seems like they are still hungover. How? I don’t know. Theo Epstein and Jed Hoyer have set this team up for success, but it’s confusing as to what’s going in that clubhouse.

They’re currently 3-3, which comes at a surprise, but the Marlins, who are arguably the worst team in baseball on paper, did give them a run for their money. They didn’t make that many offseason moves but they did, however, add depth to their pitching in signing Yu Darvish and former Rockie, Tyler Chatwood. They have an incredible offense that will more than likely produce and will probably get the Cubs back into first but they have a serious threat in the Brewers. The Cubs may be a no-brainer team, but that doesn’t mean their postseason spot is guaranteed.

Takeaways

Whew, that was a lot to get through but there are ten teams that the Rockies have to compete with along with the four in the NL West. As you know now, if you didn’t before, they aren’t all as competitive as some others.
