Chicago Cubs: Last thoughts

PECOTA projections have been known to be uber-conservative since their inception in 2003, which is why it is difficult to believe an 82-80 finish honestly. That being said, no team is expected to win over 90 games according to the PECOTA Depth Chart projections.

Gaining both Darvish and Bryant back healthy will provide a huge boon. Allowing Contreras more consistent days off will only help everyone. Lastly, once Morrow returns from his recovery, and if Carl Edwards Jr. can rebound, the bullpen will flourish.

Next. And the Chicago Cubs win the 2016 World Series!. dark

This season is one of major interest to see how the Cubs rebound from adversity last season. Hopefully, the Cubbies can answer the call.
