Chicago Cubs: Five questions for the stretch run

Were it not for the gross uncertainty that a one-game wildcard playoff presents, the excitement around the 2015 Chicago Cubs would be astronomically higher. For as excited as Cubdom is over the explosive 76-57 record, there seems to be a slight hesitation to that excitement --a hesitation fueled by the uneasy thought that no matter how magical this run may be, it could all end, at the hands of the Pittsburg ...

Chicago Cubs and the disease of the trade deadline
