There’s Always This Year

What a year!

The bar was set higher than I think it ever has been after 2015’s NLCS run, and they certainly delivered. Watching this team accomplish something that had alluded the club for 108 years was exciting.

At a party the other night, someone asked me if I would be satisfied if the Cubs ended up losing the World Series. My reply was quick and emphatic.

Yes, absolutely.

While naturally I want them to win and thankfully they did, more importantly, they are building a foundation. The Ricketts family, Theo Epstein, and Jed Hoyer have worked hard to put a team together to fix the “lovable loser” culture.

This year is only the beginning.
