Best team in the world but moves have been made

Since the first week of November when the Chicago Cubs won the World Series. Many changes have been made since then. First Fowler became a free agent at the end of the season. Though the Cubs tried to sign him back, Fowler ended with St. Louis with a five-year eighty-two million dollar contract. This happened at the beginning of December. The Cubs then Traded Jorge Soler to the Royals for RHP Wade Davis.
