1. Chicago Cubs

The Cubs finished second in the NL in runs in 2016, trailing only the Rockies, and they look even better this season on paper. Kyle Schwarber returns from a major knee injury, and Willson Contreras should be able to contribute for a full season. Chicago's lineup also features 2016 NL MVP Kris Bryant and first baseman Anthony Rizzo. The only major loss this offseason was center fielder Dexter Fowler, who will be replaced by Jon Jay and Albert Almora. His loss will hurt the team against lefties, in which the Cubs ranked second in baseball with an .807 OPS. Still, the depth seems never-ending, as the versatile Ben Zobrist and Javier Baez show.
