After last season, the Cubs have to prove it to me now whether or not they can be the team they were from 2015-2018. I do not expect 103 wins and a WS win lol but 90 wins should be the goal with the lineup we have. Without an ACE pitcher I don't see it though, I see us around .500 without an ACE. Darvish may be good but he isn't an ACE, Lester and Hendricks are in the same boat IMO. Lester was an ACE 3 years ago. The Cubs bullpen is inconsistent as hell too. Maybe David Ross will be a breath of fresh air as manager, that by itself may help the team. Maddon was great but wore out his welcome.
The Reds have been the most active over the winter. I live in Louisville, home of the AAA affiliate of the Reds, so there's always been a lot of Reds fans in this area. We're just 100 miles from Cincinnati.
Hope they can improve...very loyal fans and they haven't had much to cheer for in a long time.
Whichever team can avoid major injuries and have a player or two perform above their usual level may be the one to win the division.
