When we look back at them as the sultry summer months advance, we often chuckle at how wildly off base he was, but other times you’re forced to say “damn, Rob, that was some well-predicted insanity!”With that in mind, and only one game under our belts in the 2019 season, I thought it might be fun to get the weekly FanPosts kicked off with all of you coming up with your own wild predictions. They can be anything you want. Christin Stewart makes an All-Star Team? You bet. Miguel Cabrera hits 40 home runs? I like your enthusiasm! The only rule here is that the prediction must be feasible in a baseball season. So no, the Tigers cannot end their season early and just go golfing in July. Since this is our first FanPost Prompt of the regular season, a quick primer on how it works! Just head over to the FanPost section Austin Hedges Jersey , select “new FanPost” on the left (you will need to have a registered account — noanonymous posting) and just start writing! Every month we will be posting a rundown of the best FanPosts that month, and we read every single one you guys post, so have fun with it! Many of our staff writers began by churning out clever FanPosts!Now get to writing those predictions! The Chicago Cubs are reportedly set to pick up the $20 million option in starting pitcher Cole Hamels' contract for the 2019 season, according to's Jerry Crasnick.Chicago acquired Hamels in a pre-deadline trade with the Texas Rangers last season.The 34-year-old was excellent down the stretch last season, as the left-hander went 4-3 with a 2.36 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 74 strikeouts in 76.1 innings across 12 starts for the Cubs.When adding in his time with the Rangers, Hamels went 9-12 with a 3.78 ERA, 1.26 WHIP and 188 strikeouts.Hamels is set to enter his 14th MLB season, with his best years coming during a decade-long stint with the Philadelphia Phillies to start of his career. Three of Hamels' four All-Star nods came as a member of the Phillies Carlos Asuaje Jersey , and he led them to the World Series title in 2008 and was named World Series MVP.While Hamels wasn't as dominant after getting shipped from the Phillies to the Rangers, he experienced a career renaissance following his trade to Chicago.By keeping Hamels in the fold, the Cubs ensured a strong rotation for 2019, assuming they keep everyone else in place.Jon Lester, Kyle Hendricks, Jose Quintana, Yu Darvish and Mike Montgomery all remain under team control for next season.Darvish only made eight starts last season due to anelbow injury, but if he doesn't heal as well as hoped, the Cubs have enough depth to fall back on.If Darvish is good to go , however, Hamels' return could allow manager Joe Maddon to strengthen his bullpen by moving Montgomery, a southpaw, back into a relief role.Despite reaching the playoffs in four straight seasons, 2018 was somewhat disappointing for the Cubs since they lost to the Colorado Rockies in the National League Wild Card Game.By retaining Hamels, though, the Cubs have a chance to boast one of the best starting rotations in Major League Baseball next season, and that should keep them in the World Series conversation.
