The countdown is on as we sit less than two weeks away from Opening Day. As the MLB season usually carries its oddities as well as its fair share of incredible moments, fans are bound to see more this season, and we can hardly wait. Here are five bold predictions for the Chicago Cubs in 2019.

Every year there tends to be something out of the usual which occurs. Whether it is relegated to a single game or throughout an entire season, MLB is always the best for the unbelievable. One of the single most fun aspects with writing about the Chicago Cubs is predicting and projecting the perceived finishes to any given season.

It is a simple thing to predict a bounce-back season for Kris Bryant or give way to the idea the Cubs will once again win 90 games. Frankly, it becomes boring projecting the obvious. The real fun comes from projecting the fantastical.

Now, we’re not predicting a 40 steal season from Kyle Schwarber. Or multiple no-hitters from the pitching staff. But all of these are rooted in some sense of realistic possibility. While they might not all happen? It’s realistic that at least one will.
