Chicago Cubs: Who stands in the way of the NL Pennant?
Keep an eye out for the Miami Marlins, the Colorado Rockies, and Atlanta Braves. The Marlins are just a year removed from an encouraging 2014 season and will be getting its ace Jose Fernandez back healthy. They also signed Wei-Yin Chen and Dee Gordon to five-year deals.
I mention the Rockies because of its star-studded lineup. The infield is filled with power and gold glove winners, and the same can be said about the outfield. The problem always lies within the rotation and that won’t be any different in 2016.
As for the Braves, I think John Hart has something going here. Atlanta will probably suffer one more sub-par season, but that franchise is on its way back up.
In the end, it doesn’t really matter because the Cubs are better than every team listed in this post.
