2020 Cubs - End of Era

Here are my predictions. I think it is safe say to these individual will probably not be with the Cubs in 2020:


Pedro Strop - worst year yet in relief and closing. He is a free agent. With a 4.99 ERA in his contract year he is as good as gone.

Steve Cishek - 13 million contract price vs mediocre production. The Cubs will gladly let him enter free agency after his performance over the last two years.

Jon Lester - Continuously declining in performance. His record in 2019 does not show how horrible he truly was. Offense has bailed him out many times.

Brandon Morrow - Nobody cares why he will be gone and will soon forget he played for the Cubs.

Cole Hamels - He was to improve the overall pitching rotation. Cubs will part ways with him.

Nicholas Castellanos - the only player on this list the Cubs should fight for, but probably will not.

Ben Zobrist - Extremely reliable as player, but aged, becoming slow on the bases, and will not fit in future plans.

Ian Happ - 2019.... 'nuff said :(

Addiso…

Lester

Can you believe Lester got a win today?
Lester gave up:

5 Single
4 Double
2 Walks
1 Triple

This was over 5 innings. Total of 7 runs given up while Lester was pitching, yet he still go the win. Two of the runs were because of errors, but that is not how anyone got on base.  Think if the Cubs had faced a good pitching team and go blanked like so many times have happened this year.  The Cubs just can't afford to have Lester pitch anymore.
