The Chicago Cubs have had a great run under Theo Epstein, culminating in a World Series title. But of course, things haven’t always gone perfectly.
When Theo Epstein joined the Chicago Cubs, it was all about “the plan”. Epstein was very aware of what it was going to take to turn the franchise around, and he knew the fans would need to be patient to get through it. He got us from back-to-back 100 loss seasons to a World Series trophy. But for a moment of humility, let’s look back at some of Epstein’s moves that didn’t work out.
It seems a little weird to talk about Kyle Schwarber for Comeback Player of the Year when we just watched him in the World Series, but this is indeed the case. After we thought he was lost for the season, Schwarber showed grit and dedication to get back for the Cubs title run. So there really aren’t too many reasons we should question his determination. Is a Comeback Player of the Year in his future?
The one great thing about the internet today? Hype videos. There’s no shortage of them. As defending champs, I don’t think I need to sell you on getting hype for the upcoming season. But just in case you aren’t quite ready, take a look at some of these from around the internet.
