The Cubs have suffered some disappointing seasons lately. I’m not sarcastically commenting on the last 100 years; rather, I am talking about the problems they have had since 2003. They were 5 outs away from the World Series, and they have not neared that feat since. I’m not going wallow in pity, especially now that Carlos Pena is on the way. He has been a leader for the Rays, a previously horrible franchise, and helped in their run to the World Series 2 years ago. I’m not saying his arrival will deliver the Cubs to the World Series (although that would be wonderful), but I do have 5 reasons why he will be able to help the Cubs win the division.
