Will Cubs Starters Be Able To Get It Done in 2009

Posted on 26 January 2009 by Lou

Carlos Zambrano, Ryan Dempster, Ted Lilly, Rich Harden, #5 starter… Sounds like a pretty impressive starting 4-5, but with Rich Harden’s re-emerged shoulder issues and continued worries about any lingering issues that Carlos Zambrano may have with his right arm, will the team live up to the hype during the 2009 MLB season. Coming off back-to-back NL Central division titles, AND back-to-back 3-game sweeps in the divisional round of the playoffs where Cubs fans were left asking “Why?”, the Chicago Cubs, and in particular, the starting rotation, has a lot of pressure to excel again in 2009.
