2019 Chicago Cubs

​The Cubs are coming off one of the most disappointing seasons since 2003, that has left a sour taste in the fans mouth and to throw salt in the wounds there wasn’t a superstar signing.   The biggest departure was of Daniel Murphy and the additions of Daniel Descalso along with Brad Brach. Descalso is an above average defender coming into a crowded infield but leaves a lot to be desired with the bat and Brach will be an upgrade to the bullpen if he stays healthy and has a proven track record of being dominant at times.  The biggest issue with the Cubs last season were the injuries and that’s going to be the difference between being a division leader or fighting for a playoff spot.

​The outlook for this season is optimistic because health is on their side, look for a bounce back season from a healthy Kris Bryant and Yu Darvish.  For the Cubs to hit the 90+ win mark they need a few breaks to go their way, here are five things the Cubs need to go there to end up on top of the NL Central.

1. Kris Bryant needs to be the KB of past and show MVP form.
2. Yu Darvish needs put 2018 behind him and pitch his ass off to earn that contract.
3. Need to have production from the catchers position hopefully it is Contreras over Caratini.
4. Kyle Schwarber needs to hit 30+ homeruns and hit over .250.
5. Addison Russell needs to see his tenure with the Cubs come to an end.

I put the Cubs on track for 91 wins this season with the third best record in the National League. The upset here is that they will make the playoffs via the wild card with the Cardinals winning the division by five games.
