    Interesting. I hope they didn't, but we still haven't won in forever.

    So in 1918 someone paid the Cubs to lose games on purpose? Perhaps someone should explain to the team they can stop losing now.

    "bizarre baserunning mistakes and fielding flubs"

    We are the innovators of losing in more ways than one!!

    Maybe someone should tell the guys that those checks cleared long ago, unless it's been paying off through an endowment fund or something........
