Veteran Lester thinks Cubs' youth helps chance for repeating

MESA, Ariz. (AP) No baseball team has repeated as World Series champions since the New York Yankees reigned from 1998 through 2000.

There are reasons, starting with the fact that a title-winning team's offseason is so short.

Jon Lester, a three-time World Series champion, thinks the Chicago Cubs have a few legs up on the situation. Young legs.
