2014: 73-89, 5th in NL Central
There is no arguing that the 2014 Chicago Cubs improved from last year’s team. The Cubs posted their best record since the 2009 season. Although that might not seem like much, it shows the improvement that head of baseball operations, Theo Epstein, has been preaching. Since June 1st, the club played .500 baseball and the product on the field vastly improved. This was due to the standout performers mentioned above, but also to the performances of their recent call-ups: Javier Baez, Jorge Soler, and Kyle Hendricks.
Cubs fans will be quick to contain their expectations for the 2015 season but it is impossible to ignore the optimism surrounding the team. Realistic expectations might have the Cubs another year or two removed from being a possible playoff contender, but the 2015 Cubs should make even more strides forward. The arrival of number one prospect, Kris Bryant will undoubtedly be huge. Bryant, along with the likes of everyone mentioned will all be key pieces if the Cubs want to get back to the promised land that is the MLB playoffs.
