Cubs Try to Fulfill 'Back to the Future II' Prophecy

If one thing is evident this offseason, the Cubs are building for the future. In "Back to the Future II" the Cubs win the World Series in a fictional 2015 that could turn out to be true.

"I wish I could go back to the beginning of the season and put some money on the Cubbies," said old Terry in the 1990 film.

Cubs fans should get their "Wait 'Til Next Year" signs ready for 2012 and probably 2013. But 2014 and 2015 are prime years for a championship run with the recent offseason transactions.

The Cubs have traded away most of their big money, low production players except Alfonso Soriano whose contract is up after 2014, Chicago still owes him $54,000,000. The rebuilding process will take two years.

The first year will be a test for players, the team will only keep people who can help the organization for years to come. Say goodbye to Ryan Dempster, Marlon Byrd, hopefully Soriano and maybe Geovany Soto. The front office will evaluate as much of the young talent as they can, then cut anyone who won’t make it in the big leagues.
