“The primary reason why it’s hard to repeat is just because it’s really difficult to win the World Series,” Epstein said. “In any given year, if you’re any old team, you have a 3-percent chance. If you’re the best team, you might have, you know, a 10- or 12-percent chance. So it’s just hard to do. But there are things that get in the way.”
Pulling for the Cubbies to repeat, no matter how hard it is. We have a great team returning, and if Heyward has found his swing it’s only going up from there. Best infield in baseball, great starting pitchers and some hot outfielders, at least with potential. Big thing is how well the bullpen does and whether we get the 2014 Wade Davis or the 2015 version.
Countdown to 2017 playoffs has already begun.
