Baseball 2017 Futures as Spring Training Opens – The 2017 spring training camps for major league baseball are underway. The 2016 World Series was historic in that it was won by the Chicago Cubs for the first time in more than 100 years.

Manager Joe Madden did a fine job of managing a talented team that was expected to do big things. The Chicago Cubs and their fans spent a 2016 season riding the typical ups and downs of a long baseball seasonal the way to the title. The big time comeback in the world series was a fitting capper to a feel good season.

Madden has retained the parts to make another run this year as the Cubs remain the most talent laden team in the league. This year the Cubs will have a clear target on their backs.

You have to ask yourself about that curse – did the Cubs really break the curse after more than 100 years? Can they really repeat them, or will any type of bump in the road result in the Cubbie faithful singing the blues?
