Chicago Cubs: Time to win another Championship
The number one reason that Kris Bryant should stay in Chicago? That’s easy; the Chicago Cubs plan on winning another World Series next year, and they’ve taken significant steps to make it happen. This isn’t like the talk we hear every offseason since 2016, this time around the Chicago Cubs Manager, Joe Maddon has moved on to the Los Angeles Angels and former World Series, Game 7 hero and catcher, David Ross, has been hired as the new manager.
That means everything is getting shaken up for next season. New coaches have been named, front office personnel has taken new jobs, especially in player development and so things are not going to be the same if Kris Bryant decides to stay in Chicago. He’s going to find a manager and team that is more focused next season but still having fun if Ross has anything to do with it.
He is also going to experience the Cubs making their players be more accountable for their offensive prowess and defensive plays. The good old days of making mistakes and shrugging it off as “training” are not going to fly on this new Cubs team.
And that’s the real reason Bryant should stick around; this season is going to be a ‘new’ team. Besides new management, coaches, front office people, and new focus, the Cubs are going to bring on some new players to help get it done. There should be new help in the bullpen and possibly even in the starting rotation. It’s a new team with a unique chance to win it all.
Things are starting to get exciting again on the North Side, let’s hope that Bryant will soon announce he’s staying a Cub and we can get the party started for 2020.
