Kiss 'Em Goodbye: Chicago Cubs
In 2011, the Wrigley residents likely will rely on youth more than ever
Kiss 'Em Goodbye is a series focusing on MLB teams as their postseason dreams fade -- whether in September (or before), the League Division Series, League Championship Series or World Series. It combines a broad overview of this season from Buster Olney, a take from Baseball Prospectus, a look toward an immediate 2011 move courtesy of Rumor Central and Kevin Goldstein's farm system overview. You can find all the teams on one page by going here.
First up: the Chicago Cubs. It's time to kiss 'em goodbye.
For the full breakdown from all angles -- Olney's take, BP's take, Rumor Central's ideas and buzz and the farm system -- you need to be an ESPN Insider.
