5 reasons the Cubs can win the World Series
Since then, the Cubs have been just awful. They barely missed the playoffs in 2009, and after that they haven't been above .500 until this year. So when people say the Cubs have a chance at making it to the World Series this year, you should proceed with caution.
However, there is something happening in Chicago this year that is getting Cubs fans excited. With the huge off season acquisition of Jon Lester, as well as signing head coach Joe Maddon on, the Cubs seemed to be moving in the right direction. Now all they needed was a few good hitters.
Throughout the first month, we have seen three huge prospects move up from the farm system and enter the Cubs lineup by storm. Jorge Soler, Addison Russell, and Kris Bryant are making waves in the MLB this year and there is no reason people can't get excited about it.
Do the Cubs really have enough to win a World Series though? Maybe.
They certainly have all the right pieces to be good in the future. Some might think that winning this year might be a little bit overambitious. But if you look at what the Cubs have done this year thus far, there is no reason why anyone should count them out. The Cubs young hitters are cranking out RBIs left and right, Lester is finding his barrings, and Joe Maddon is making all the right moves in the clubhouse. So once again, proceed with caution Cubs fans. But this year could be your year.
