Here's a Cubs preview at my site, which happens to be SB Nation's Pirates site. It's hard to write about a team you don't follow every day - unfortunately, I'm a Pirates fan and I can't follow the Cubs as closely as you probably do. Also, I've written four previews so far, and this one was by far the hardest because the Cubs have done so much this offseason. So if I missed anything or made any mistakes, please let me know.
Anyway, I thought you might appreciate an outsider's take on the Cubs' chances this year.
