T-Minus 7 days until pitchers and catchers report we can get through this guys
I don’t think I have to tell anybody that this is a very exciting year for Cubs fans. Last year was the opening of a dynasty. That makes the anticipation for this year at the highest it’s ever been. Having sat through too many shitty Bulls games I can’t take it anymore. We will have a full run down of what is going to come very soon. But I woke up this morning and I am getting more and more news about baseball season starting up gets me pumped. For the start here are the Pitchers that are going to be getting it done this year:
Jake Arrieta, Kyle Hendricks, Jon Lester, John Lackey and Mike Montgomery will be our starters this year. Our top three guys combined for a 53-22 record, not too shabby. Hendrix finished 3rd in the Cy Young voting with a 16-3 record with an ERA of just 2.13.
The rest of the guys filling in some will have names you are familiar with and there will be some new ones. With Alroldis Chapman gone with got a steal in Wade Davis from the Royals who completed 27 of 30 saves last year which will work out just fine with us. Carl Edwards, Hector Rondon and Justin Grimm, with newly-signed additions Brian Duensing, Brett Anderson and the old man Koji Uehara who will be a welcomed addition to the Club. Also we might have gotten a steal in Jim Henderson. He is coming off Tommy Johns surgery so that could be the guy who turns it back on completing 28 saves for the Mets a few years back.
Special and Exciting times are upon us for this season. I know I’m going to be right in it the entire year feeling excited as ever for the new season.
