For Cubs fans, saying “this is the year” has become something of a cliche in Chicago, but with the talent the Cubbies showed last year, there may be some truth behind that statement as the Cubs show a lot of promise this year. They’ll be starting off their season heading into Anaheim to face the Angels, who will be looking to do better this season as well, after not making the playoffs last season – a rare occurrence for a team that’s usually pretty solid. The Cubs are 11-3 in their last 14 road games, and in the only interleague matchup happening on Monday, both teams have a lot riding on their shoulders.
The Cubs (0-0) have an extremely talented young roster that was only boosted up more by Ben Zobrist, John Lackey, and Jason Heyward in the offseason. Though the Cubs couldn’t get past the Mets last year in the NLCS, expectations are flying high this year for them. Much of that pressure is going to fall on today’s starter on the mound, Jake Arrieta, who pitched an ERA of 1.77 last season. The Cubs’ bullpen is also strong, and full of power hitters, including some of their newer talent. Whether it can take them all the way this year remains to be seen, but obviously, fans are hopeful.
The Angels (0-0) did have a successful year last season, but didn’t make the playoffs, so they’ll be looking to turn that around this year. Mike Trout will be a fixture for the team, both in scoring, and in the outfield. Where Chicago is filled with a lot of young talent, Los Angeles has a lot of experience, and consistently play well. They even beat the Cubs during the Spring season, so today’s matchup will be a battle between experience and enthusiasm.
