I'm Kelly...and a 3rd generation Cub fan! Yes, my family may not necessarily pick winners but we're loyal. :).
I live down in NC and since they don't have a ball club of their own, the team of choice around here is the Braves (gag!). Since the Braves have won a World Series within the last 104 years, I spend a lot of time defending the Cubbies. They just don't get it....the Cubs aren't just a team; they're a way of life.
So, while I work on losing some weight and getting healthy, I'm looking forward to the season starting. Of course, we still have a lousy pitching staff with closers that are either overrated or overworked. Our infield has seen more turnover in the last couple of years, and after last season and 101 losses, one can see why. Finally, we've got some hope in the outfield since Soriano seems to be holding his own.....but for how much longer? Plus, he seems to be our power hitter now.
Oh well, I'm optimistic anyway.
