Cubs have lost 3+ in a row to end every playoff run they've had since 1945

I'd take Steven A Smith and Hawk Harelson even.

Yup. I think this needs to be remembered. The tendency--and it's not wrong--will be to blame the offense because they only scored "x" amount of runs. Which will be true. But the pitching was also not good enough. You just can't keep falling behind--and falling behind immediately, not late on account of the offense failing.

find a way to break a curse, do whatever you have to. this team is capable of winning a world series.

hey, remember in 2003 when we hadn't lost 3 in a row all year until the nlcs, just when we were about to make it to the series? anybody remember 1984? they can't get there, it cannot be explained.


I think that they've only been to the NLCS 3 times in the 46 years its existed kinda explains it pretty well.


4 times. 0-5 in clinching games and 0-4 in the series themselves. doesn't count 69, either. cubs haven't been to a series since 45, the year of the curse.


They've only played in 3 NLCS series.

Enough already. The curse this team had until this point was mismanagement. At the beginning of the year, .500 was the popular pick. This team way overachieved.


Yep. That we got this far with a lineup of college-aged kids is incredible.

On the bright side, we're only six solo home runs away from tying it!

But no ones trading for his carcass.

Start him until mid season when he is carrying a great era


IIRC, Jon Lieber had a similar problem as a Cub a zillion years ago. But I liked him.
