Will the Chicago Cubs repeat as World Series champs?
#CubsDynasty

The Cubs started the 2017 without a win, but it's unlikely to stay that way. This is a talented and young squad, hot off a drought-snapping World Series championship. But repeating is hard. Can the Cubbies do it again?

Unfortunately for Murray and other famous Cubs fans, life doesn't repeat itself in baseball. Repeating as World Series champion is a possibility, of course, but we know Joe Maddon's team won't follow the same road it did last season.

Here are 5 reasons why the Cubs will repeat in 2017. It's destiny!

1. Most of the team will return
2. Jason Heyward will bounce back
3. Kyle Schwarber will be healthy
4. The core is still young
5. Sorry NL fans, but the competition is weak

But here are 4 solid reasons why the Cubs won't repeat in 2017. Baseball is tough!

1. Major League Baseball hasn’t seen a repeat champion since the New York Yankees’ three-peat from 1998 to 2000
2. Three-fifths of the Cubs' rotation is on the wrong side of 30
3. The outfield is weak
4. The Indians look even better than last year
