The Chicago Cubs are in the playoffs, and fans are getting excited! With the amazing play of the young rookies, Kris Bryant, Addison Russell and Kyle Schwarber, mixed in with the play of the veterans Anthony Rizzo and a re-energized and re-born Starlin Castro they have the offensive firepower to get the job done. Not to mention the dominating pitching of Jake Arrieta and Jon Lester leading the way. Sure, they “only” have two pitchers you can really count on, but so what? So did the 2001 Arizona DiamondBacks. All they had was Curt Schilling and Randy Johnson, other than that their cupboard was pretty much empty in the starting rotation. Before you tell me that Schilling and Johnson are better than Arrieta and Lester, the point still stands. Two pitchers you feel confident in.
Will the Cubs go all the way? I am not sure, but I believe that they are talented enough team that they will be a legit threat to who ever they play, and wherever they play them. So why not celebrate and enjoy what is happening?
