I heard one of the broadcasters say last night that the Cubs had now lost nine playoff games in a row. I know the Diamondbacks swept them last year. What on earth is it with the Cubbies and the playoffs anyway? 'Course if they ever did make it to the Series, we might never again be able to hear that sweet Steve Goodman tune.
