Chicago spent the offseason changing over the look of their roster and coaching staff in a hope to usher in a new winning era on the North side. The Cubs brought in former Tampa Bay Rays manager Joe Maddon and former Red Sox and A’s ace Jon Lester. Chicago is expected to battle with the Cardinals and Pittsburgh Pirates for the top spot in the National League Central.
