Chicago Sports: The 2015 Chicago Cubs: Look Out Cardinals, Here Come The Cubbies
2015 promises to be another exciting year in Chicago sports, particularly baseball, where both the Chicago Cubs Tickets and
White Sox Tickets made significant roster moves to put themselves back into contention. Let’s take a look at some of the Chicago Cubs’ acquisitions this past offseason and how they will help the team return to the top of the National League Central in 2015:
– Jon Lester: The signings of Lester and new manager Joe Maddon were the two biggest moves the Cubs made this past offseason and will have a large impact on the team’s fortunes this year. Over the past nine years, Lester has established himself as one of Major League Baseball’s most dependable, rock-solid, high-achieving starting pitchers. A three-time All Star Tickets and two-time World Series champion with a career record of 116 wins, 67 losses and a 3.58 earned run average, Lester will lead a rotation that also includes young phenom Jake Arrieta, Jason Hammel, and Kyle Hendricks.
– Miguel Montero: Acquired in a trade from the Diamondbacks Tickets, Montero is a two-time all-star catcher with 97 career home runs. He will be a solid addition to the lineup, which includes first baseman and young star Anthony Rizzo and shortstop Starlin Castro.
– Jason Hammel: Hammel, who pitched for the Cubs in 2014 before being traded to Oakland, boasts a solid career record of 245 wins and 187 losses; before being traded to the Athletics Tickets last year, he won eight games for the Cubs with a 2.98 earned run average. He’ll be a solid fixture behind ace Jon Lester.
– Joe Maddon: Maddon, one of the baseball’s most respected managers, was one of the Cubs’ earliest signings this past offseason. He is most noted for managing the Tampa Bay Rays Tickets from 2006 to 2014, raising them up from being the laughingstock of the MLB to the American League championship in 2008 and playoff contention in subsequent seasons. Maddon is a two-time Manager of the Year winner and will lead a Cubs team that looks to unseat the St. Louis Cardinals Tickets, perennial National League Central division winners.
The Chicago Cubs fans have responded favorably to the possibility of a successful season this year as well. Chicago Cubs ticket price average this season is $53.00 per ticket which is up 15.2% from last season’s average price of $46.00 per ticket.
