My offseason predictions

Given that i'm bad at predicting things, especially those dealing with my beloved Cubs, you shouldn't expect any of the following things to actually happen. However, i've tried to piece together my...

Bring me the bat of Matt Lawton!

It sounds ridiculous, doesn't it? The thing is, it really makes a lot of sense. His OBP is .376, which would be 2nd highest on the Cubs behind D-Lee. His lifetime OBP is .370, so we can expect this...
