Cubs

If all goes according to plan, Jon Lester will get the start for the Cubs Opening Night against the St. Louis Cardinals, regardless of Adam Wainwright's status or Wrigley Field's construction.
The regular season is just over a month away, but the Cubs already see youngster Kyle Hendricks as a lock for the rotation and Travis Wood may have the inside track to the No. 5 starter spot.
The Cubs are obsessed with the Boston Red Sox and have to beat the St. Louis Cardinals, and Theo Epstein spent the entire offseason trying to implant some of that championship DNA into the Cubs.
