As the Cubs continue to let free agents slip away, the outlook of this group is uncertain, but we know but chemistry will be there with David Ross in charge

In recent days, the Cubs let two more key pieces slip away, as Brandon Kintzler inked a deal with the Miami Marlins and slugging outfielder Nicholas Castellanos joined the rival Cincinnati Reds.

Last season, Kintzler was a massive piece in the bullpen and it’s demoralizing knowing the team couldn’t dish out $3 million dollars to keep him. With Castellanos scoring a four-year deal at a $16 million AAV, you’re safe in assuming Chicago found themselves priced out for his services, as well

The Cubs still have an opportunity to make some impactful moves, but with spring training right around the corner, fans may have to accept the fact that this group may not get the help needed. On a brighter note, with David Ross at the helm, the chemistry of this team should be off the charts.

Expectations for the team this year are really unclear at this point, but fans err on the side of caution when thinking about the success of this group. Sure, there are a few exciting storylines heading into this season in the form of Yu Darvish and Kyle Schwarber, but that is accompanied by some uncertainty.
