The Sold Out Cubs Convention kicks off today at the Chicago Sheraton & Towers.  Wish I was there to get a glimpse at Manager Joe Maddon and ace Lefty Jon Lester — there will probably be a lot of buzz surrounding the team this weekend.

Here’s a good little schedule of what to expect this – the “Friday Night with Ryan Dempster” would probably be pretty entertaining too.  That guys is a riot and now that he’s no longer playing, he can probably be even more candid than he usually is.

Not sure how thrilled I am that Anthony Rizzo predicted that the Cubs would knock off the Cards and Pirates for the NL Central Division title this year.  I’m sure Maddon and Theo & Co. are even less thrilled than me.  But you gotta like the confidence: “It’s what we’re going to do.  We’re going to to play and we’re going to win the NL Central, you can quote me on that. We should be the team, with all due respect to every other team, we’re going to do some things this year. That’s what we’re going to put our sights on and we’re not going to accept anything else.” WOW!

It will be interesting to see if anyone else makes some bold claims like Rizzo during the course of the Cubs convention weekend.  We’ll keep you posted and Go Cubs Go!
