As I begin writing this post, the 2015 Major League Baseball season is about to begin.  The St. Louis Cardinals are squaring off against the Chicago Cubs within the confines of storied Wrigley Field. The Cards are perennial participants in the National League playoffs and have won 11 World Series, most recently in 2011.  The Cubs by contrast last appeared in the Series in 1945 losing to the Detroit Tigers. They last won in 1908 again against the Tigers.

The addition of a new manager with a solid World Series pedigree, Joe Maddon and one of baseball's superstar pitchers, John Lester; hopes are high for the Cubs and should be.  They have the weight of Back the Future 2 already engraving a place in baseball history for the Cubbies.

Frankly, I suspect that what was fantasy in the BTTF2 will be reality.  My friends Jeff Boylan and Jim Stanley will be among the happiest of campers on the planet.

The baseball fan within me--regular and fantasy (my DR STEVE'S SLUGGERS are poised to win the Bases Loaded Fantasy League--is just happy that the season is finally here.
