2012 was a season to forget for the Cubs, but there were a few positives to take into the future.

In 2012, the Chicago Cubs endured one of the worst seasons in franchise history. You'd have to travel back 46 years to uncover the last time the North Siders lost more than 100 games in one year.  

Cubs fans expected a certain level of trial and error, of course. After all, it was Theo Epstein and Jed Hoyer's first season with the organization. Same goes for Chicago's skipper, Dale Sveum.

You don't need me to tell you that little went right for the Cubbies in 2012. The 61-101 record speaks for itself. Even so, numerous reasons to be excited about this franchise rose to the surface throughout the course of the year. 

Here are 10 things we learned about the Chicago Cubs this season and how these lessons should impact the future.
