Cubs fan here. Been one my whole life. I'm just hoping that maybe in the next couple years the Cubs will be able to develop the younger players as well as possibly get some power players so the team can actually be a real contender. Its getting old seeing them blow leads or lose games by only 1 or 2 runs.

Sigh
I've been seeing that, more or less, for 35 years or so.

Yeah, hopefully the Ricketts' are serious about winning, but they do have to consider it a business too.

Hiring Epstein & Hoyer were huge moves, obviously.

It is seriously going to take time though. The minors were practically empty of good talent for a long time.
