I’m curious. How many wins do my fellow Cubs Fans (or for that matter, fans of other teams within the division) think it will take to win the NL Central this year? I’ll kick things off by throwing my own guesstimate into the ring with 89. I don’t think Milwaukee did enough to take the crown away and I believe the Cubs will be better than last year. With the new acquistions and a more comfortable and roster knowledgable Piniella, I think we’ll win 93 games this year…putting them in first place, winning the division by 5 games over the Brewers.
What do you guys think?
Go Cubs! (by the way, I love the idea of Fukudome, Lee, Ramirez as our 3-4-5 hitters…saw the story on MLB.com today and it sounds worth a shot to me! But ‘whoever wins the centerfield spot’? I’m still thinking it’ll be PIE.
