    Big offseason for the Cubs. Ranked favorite to win it all together with the Giants.

    This team has all the makings of a World Series club, with their incredible wealth of young talent and new older guys.

    I just read that the Cubs are Las Vegas favorites for the World Series title next season. That's optimism.

    I think the cubs will be fine next year if they add another good starter. Arrieta will regress a little but he is a good pitcher and arrieta plus Lester plus x could be a good rotation. The young lineup will probably improve with experience too.

Because though Arrieta has been great this year, I could see him going kluber and seeing a bit of a decline next season.
    His 2nd half was unprecedented...no way he matches that again...I don't want some superstar pitcher...the Cubs past investment in superstars hasn't been the best...and I include Lester in that

    Join the club. I don't even feel like watching the World Series after that letdown. I already know the Mets are going to win it, so what's the point in watching yet another team I hate take the title?
