The Cubs have had a long history of killing their fans' dreams. They would make a huge trade during the offseason, such as Alfonso Soriano, and give all the fans something to hope for, but in the end the fans are disappointed yet again.

The 2009 season might be the year for the Cubs. We have been able to stick in the race so far with the Brewers and Cardinals, which is a great sign. The Cubs are always able to fight their hardest in the end. 

The main problem with the Chicago Cubs is that they are never able to be consistent. In a lot of their games, they might be winning and then out of nowhere they lose because they are never able to pull it off.  

Although the Cubs might make me break something when they lose, they are still one of the best teams every year in the MLB. Maybe after all the Cubs could be consistent. In the past couple years they have made the playoffs and have had a successful year.

I'm not one of those fans that want to kill Bartman for what he did—many Cubs fans would have done the same thing. Baseball is not about curses, it's about being able to play everyday and keep your hopes up even when you have a losing team. I have been a Cubs fan my whole life and I still have confidence in the team that I love.
