If the Chicago Cubs are going to get back to the World Series they are going to need to make their offense that much better. In order to do that, they're going to have to figure out answers to their most pressing questions.

1

What happens to Albert Almora?

Almora didn't have a terrible 2018 season overall but that's mostly because he was red hot early on. Over the second half of the season his slash line was .232/.267/.280. That's not the kind of slash line the Cubs can afford to have in the lineup every day. Does Chicago hope he can repeat what we saw in the first half, or do they replace him or relegate him to 5th outfielder.

What happens to Ian Happ?

Happ had a fantastic rookie season in 2017. His season in 2018 was largely just bad. He hit less homers (15 compared to 24) and struck out more. Speaking of bad second halves, he hit less than .200 in the second half of the season but he wasn't awesome in the first half. Do the Cubs package him in a deal? It's hard to know if there's room on the bench for Happ, even if he can play multiple positions.
