the year the cubs won the world series

cubs

my favorite team, the chicago cubs, will probably win the world series this year

it’s been over 100 years since they last won it but this year looks to be it.

last year we won something like 97 games,

then beat the mighty pirates in the one game playoff

then beat the cardinals, who had won 100 games, in the playoffs

but then lost to the mets, who were on fire, in the nlcs.

but it was cool, half of our best guys (seen above dressed as princesses) were rookies.

our third basemen won the rookie of the year,

our pitching ace won the cy young

our manager won manager of the year

we have the best GM, the genius, theo epstein

who in the last few weeks got us the best free agent outfielder

aka the cardinals best player, jason heyward

jason heyward

he got us the cardinals best pitcher (if ERA is all that matters), john lackey

lackey

and then he got us the heart of the world champion KC Royals, ben zobrist

Ben Zobrist

and just for you, and you, he picked up the Yankees best swingman

adam warren

adam somebody or another.

for cub fans, Christmas came early.

since this is a historic year where it all seems like destiny is about to reach the chicago cubs

long cursed and shunned to mediocrity

but now that the light appears to be shining right on this great team

i will blog about them once a day during the season

and far more than you will probably appreciate during this off season

hope you understand
