What are Cubs fans Thankful for?

Happy Thanksgiving Cubs fans! I hope everyone has a great day eating, giving thanks, watching football and being with their families.

Every year here on Everything Cubs Blog, we take a look at a list of things that Cubs fans have to be thankful for. Although the Boys in Blue are coming off back-to-back losing seasons, there are still a lot of factors that make it a good time to be a Cubs fan.

  • Tom Ricketts was able to bring Theo Epstein to Chicago.

  • The 2012 Cubs will feature a new president, general manager and manager.

  • Dale Sveum does not sound like he will put up with guys like Starlin Castro, Alfonso Soriano and Carlos Zambrano slacking. Sveum wants to crack down on Castro's defense.

  • Only two months until the Cubs Convention.

  • Just three months until Spring Training.

  • A week from Monday is the Ron Santo Hall of Fame announcement... maybe #10 will finally make it in.

  • You cannot get your Cubs fix all winter long as CSN Chicago has added a Hot Stove show covering the Cubs and White Sox on Tuesday nights.

  • Baseball's Winter Meetings are just over a week away and the Cubs are poised to make some moves.

  • It sounds as if Kerry Wood will return next season.

  • All baseball fans can be thankful that a new CBA has been reached and that the NBA is the only sport facing a lockout.

  • The Cubs have some solid prospects at the minor league level, led by Brett Jackson.

  • The Cubs have one of the best play-by-play men in all of baseball, Pat Hughes.

  • Matt Garza, Starlin Castro and Darwin Barney.

Once again, have a happy Thanksgiving Cubs fans!!!
