Another year, another lost season.
Sounds like the Mets. But I'm actually talking about the hapless Chicago Cubs. The Mets have at least had two World Series championships this century. The Cubs have come nowhere close.
I actually feel bad for their fans. After a 97-win season, riding high throughout the entirety of the season, they were swept out of the NLDS by Joe Torre and his Dodgers, three games to none.
The funny part about that is the Dodgers won 13 less games, had to battle through the misery that is the NL West, pretty much squeaked into the playoffs, and they came in and handily tore apart Chicago, never even letting them sniff a win.
Yankee fans in this area must not know how to feel. Joe Torre is in the LCS for another year, with Manny Ramirez, Nomar Garciaparra, and Scott Proctor all under his control. Scott Proctor's Arm seems to be a little confused.
Chicago has had a long history of baseball, but the Cubs cannot seem to break the "curse." There's always next year?
