Cubbie Blue! Not Tarheel Blue.
Don’t look now but in just 5 day’s, pitchers and catchers report to Florida and Arizona to begin training for another Major League Baseball season. Let it be said, right here in this blog, that I predict that the 2011 version of the Chicago Cubs will make their first World Series appearance since 1945. I’m not ready to predict they will win it. I’ll wait for the season to get started before I make that crazy prediction. They’ve added pitching, offense and defense this off-season and with new manager Mike Quade, they are in my opinion, the team to beat in the National League. I’ll have a position-by-position break down of the boys in blue later this month. Stay tuned. Hit me back with your National League Champion prediction.
