It’s been a frustrating year to say the least in Wrigleyville this season, but it’s all over Cubs fan. It would be unfair not to point out a few positives in the ball clubs’ first season under the Ricketts ownership. A handful of young stars joined the Cubbies’ roster including Starlin Castro, Tyler Colvin, and Andrew Cashner. Whoever takes over the Cubs’ manager job will have to focus on developing these starlets next season into top MLB players. The acquisition of Marlon Byrd paid off as the former Texas Rangers outfielder was a shining example of consistency throughout the year. The Cubs, however, were mostly poor this season. Although Alfonso Soriano had a much improved season for the Northsiders, Aramiz Ramirez and Derrek Lee both had bad seasons. Lee was traded away to Atlanta, while Ramirez has committed his future to the Cubs. The first matter of business for the Cubs is naming their next manager, but Jim Hendry will need to do some serious roster retooling if the Cubs want to return to playoffs in 2011.
