Welcome back to the regular season, Bleed Cubbie Blue fans! Real baseball was played this week! The games finally count again!
With it being the regular season again, we will be bringing back our weekly FanPost Friday prompts. If you’re new here — welcome! — the whole premise of FanPost Friday is that YOU get to write posts. FanPosts are open all the time, and you don’t need to stick to the prompt, but we like to give you something that gets those mental gears grinding, so once a week we post a prompt that you can choose to follow.
This week: Make 5 bold predictions for the 2019 Cubs! Let your imagination run wild! Do you think Yu Darvish will win the NL Cy Young? Tell us so! Do you think Javier Baez will hit 40 home runs and be the NL MVP? I like your thinking! The only restriction here is that the predictions must be possible in a standard major league season. So by all means, predict someone will hit 70 home runs, but don’t suggest that they will play a game in Peru. Pretty easy!
Since this is our first FanPost Prompt of the regular season, a quick primer on how it works! Just head over to the FanPost section, select “new FanPost” on the left (you will need to have a registered account — no anonymous posting) and just start writing! Every month we will be posting a rundown of the best FanPosts that month, and we read every single one you guys post, so have fun with it! Many of our staff writers began by churning out clever FanPosts!
Now get to writing those predictions!
