Chicago Cubs Tickets
The Chicago Cubs
The defending World Series champion Chicago Cubs have a problem every team would love to have that can only be looked upon as a double edged sword. They have a good amount of young minor league prospects that could crack over half the league's lineups but the reality for the Cubs is that with this team it's not likely to happen barring a major injury to the starters. All four infielders made the All Star team last season, in RF is the Gold Glove winner sitting on a long term contract and in LF is a power hitter who is still to reach his full potential. Manager Joe Maddon is a master at manipulation of his roster and usually finds spots for any player with talent, so perhaps there is still a chance, albeit slim, that one or more can make the big squad? Ian Hipp 2015 1st round pick and Eloy Jimenez have both shown major league talent but it maybe all for not and another season at triple A level? The cupboard was so full that it allowed the Cubs to trade what many thought were some of their very top prospects in SS Gleyber Torres who brought the Cubs Aroldis Chapman who was a big part of the first World Series win for the team in 108 years!! Another prospect that was expendable was 1B Daniel Vogelbach who went to the Seattle Mariners for journeyman pitcher Mike Montgomery. Vogelbach is expected to be the opening day starter for the Mariners. Come see the Chicago Cubs defend their crown this season with the best tickets at the best prices from Captain Ticket.
Surely no other team is feeling sorry for the predicament the Cubs find themselves in when looking at the starting lineup and total roster for 2017. The infield is packed all around the horn with All Stars led by 3B Kris Bryant who posted a .292 batting average, 39 HRs and 102 RBIs in 2016 with a .385 OB% to boot. At the other corner is Anthony Rizzo who's 2016 numbers were almost identical to Bryant's with a .292 BA, 32 HRs and 109 RBIs and his OB% was a robust .385, too. Rizzo struggled in the early playoff games but his bat came alive in the World Series to lead the Chicago Cubs to the crown. 2B is covered by Javier Baez while at SS is Addison Russell who despite a BA of only .238 slugged 21 HRs and drove in an impressive 95 runs. This is the best infield in the league and a repeat of last season by this foursome will make the Cubs tough to beat again. The outfield is talented and loaded for 2017 led by LF Ben Zobrist, Albert Almora Jr in CF and Justin Heyward in RF who the Cubs are expecting great things from and so far in spring training is hitting the cover off of the ball. Your best chance to see this dynamo of a team is with no fees tickets from Captain Ticket.
As if all this wasn't enough the Chicago Cubs’ pitching staff must be noted with distinction too. Three rock solid starters led by, well take your pick, Jon Lester or Jake Arrieta ? Arrieta, the 2015 Cy Young winner had a strange season in 2016 where his walk rate rose at a rate the Chicago Cubs must have viewed with potential red flags, going from 5.5 to 9.6%. He threw his best pitch from 2015, the slider 11% less last season indicating his lead leading 248 2/3 innings pitched which led the league in 2015, may have left him with a less than live arm. Nonetheless, just about every team in the league would take his numbers from last season in a heartbeat. Right next to him is LH ace Jon Lester who had a fabulous 2016 going 19-5 with a 2.44 ERA with 197 SO's and a minute 1.02 WHIP. He was practically untouchable in the postseason and there is no reason to suspect he will have any drop off in 2017? Kyle Hendricks had an almost equally impressive 2016 going 16-8 with a stingy 2.13 ERA while bettering Lester with a .098 WHIP. And every team should have the luxury of a cagey veteran in the # 4 spot like John Lackey and the team strengthened their staring depth by acquiring Mike Montgomery from the Seattle Mariners. The bullpen is led by Will Davis who suffered late season arm problems in 2016 but is healthy in spring training this year. Davis, whose combined last three seasons 1.18 ERA led all relievers with at least 150 IP, while his .089 WHIP was 3rd best in the majors and he finished last season with 27 saves despite limited innings due to the arm problems.This team looks like the most likely repeat champion the league has seen in many years and Captain Ticket is your best bet for the best seats at the best prices without any hidden fees.
