Thank You, Anthony Rizzo, For Guaranteeing The Cubs Won’t Win The NL Central

Like many of you, I saw the oh-so-social-media friendly “promise” that Chicago Cub Anthony Rizzo made on Thursday that the team would win the National League Central division in 2015 — it was an easily tweetable sound bite, for sure. I rolled my eyes after reading it and moved on.

How often have we already heard grand proclamations about their “guaranteed” success in 2015? Joe Maddon! Jon Lester! Kris Bryant! The Sporting News! Even Back to the Future 2!! Wooooooo!!!!!

Yesterday I was catching up on baseball news during lunch and read about Rizzo’s comments — he made them during a Cubs Caravan stop at an elementary school. I saw the actual quote of what he said. And laughed.

“It’s going to happen this year.”

Now, the grammar is perfect there in its written form, but I loved seeing those words coming from a Cub. And in case you’re wondering why …

Thanks, Anthony. Not that I was worried about your promise actually happening, but I feel much better about it now.
