It’s been a season of disappointments for the Chicago Cubs.
After signing Marcus Stroman last offseason, the Cubs went 74-88 to finish a distant third in the National League Central ahead of the St. Louis Cardinals and the Milwaukee Brewers.
This offseason, the Cubs have a lot of work to do if they want to get back to where they were in 2018.
It is very likely that we saw the last Willson Contreras in a Cubs uniform.
But that doesn’t mean fans of the lovable losers aren’t dreaming of a big offseason.
A fan submitted a list of claims for ownership and general manager Jed Hoyer.
Cubs fan leaves list of demands
Obviously this fan wants some starting pitchers.
A couple of solid arms to Stroman would actually give them a pretty scary rotation.
This fan also wants a top shortstop, a solid defensive midfielder, a big hitter and a few helpers.
While the Cubs are unlikely to do all of this, there are areas where they could look to improve ball club and give themselves a better chance of succeeding in 2023.
Candles are another thing this fan wants.
That would be the easiest thing to tick off the to-do list as it wouldn’t cost nearly as much money as signing a Superstar.
But all jokes aside, it’s unlikely the Cubs will achieve everything on the list, but that doesn’t mean they won’t try to add a few pieces to the team for 2023.
