Dear Cubs Fans, The offseason has been rough, as all fans realize. The Cubs said goodbye to long-time reliever Pedro Strop, fan-favorite Nicholas Castellanos, and veteran pitcher Cole Hamels. They may have lost key pieces, but they did add to an already star-studded line-up, adding low-risk high-reward outfielder Steven Souza and a slew of relief pitchers. Now, Cubs fans are thinking these signings won’t replace what was lost. That is correct. These are just small pieces to a giant puzzle.
