The Chicago Cubs have put their faith and future in the hands of Theo Epstein. They believe he can be the savior of the Cubs just like he was for the Boston Red Sox just a decade ago, building the squad into a team that won multiple World Series titles. The Chicago Cubs 2013 World Series Odds aren't good, in fact they're nearly the worst of any team in Major League Baseball.
With 20/1 odds to win the division, the Chicago Cubs are considered the longshot in the National League Central.
Epstein now is calling the shots for the Cubs, who are looking to no longer be the Lovable Losers everyone seems them as this season. The Cubs won only 61 games last year, dropping 101. They were pretty active in the off-season with notable additions of Edwin Jackson and Nate Schierholtz. The offense is led by youngster Starlin Castro and Alfonso Soriano was attempted to be traded but is still drawing a check from the Cubs.
The rotation has a chance to be solid with guys like Matt Garza, Jackson and Jeff Samardzija leading the way. While Epstein's plan certainly won't happen the first year, look for the Cubbies to improve upon last season's 100-loss campaign.
