A Celebration of 100 Losses

A Celebration of 100 Losses

(A special thanks to Bullpen Brian who can be found at www.bullpenbrian.com, for publishing this article.  This will be the first of several articles you'll see before the end of the year regarding the Cubs on Brian's site.  Brian has been arguably the most dedicated Cubs blogger this year...while many Cubs blogs have taken a hit, his site keeps on going.  Follow him @bullpenbrian on Twitter.)

The Cubs are inching closer towards their first 100 loss season since 1966.

46 years.

That doesn’t seem right, does it?  For most Cubs fans, it’s hard to believe that after all of the managerial flops, prospect flare-outs, and ill-fated trades that this magical number has evaded us for so long.

We all know that numerous teams (see: 1980, 1981, 1994, 1997, 1999, 2000, 2002, 2006, and 2010 Cubs) have had more than enough inept play to reach the mark.  However, only this Cubs team has had the gumption to stick it to number 100!

If any hope exists for Cubs fans, maybe a comparison of the two teams could bring some light to a depressing season. There are some big similarities…
