Long suffering Cubs fans saw their team spend $297.55 million in hopes of winning a division title. That does not include the new manager Lou Piniela's salary, who hopes to bring a more fiery approach to the North Siders.

The Cubs are approaching a rather dubious distinction coming up on 100 years since they last won a World Series. Much like the Cahokia Indians from down-state Illinois who inhabited the area not far from St. Louis from 700-1400 AD, the Cubs are living proof also anyone can have a bad century.

Chicago will send Ted Lilly to the mound who stymied the Reds in first start with Cubs, allowing three hits in seven strong innings. His mound opponent will be Woody Williams who at 40 years old returns to his home town of Houston. Williams used to pitch for St. Louis and has been battered at Wrigley Field in the past. He is 1-6 with a 6.04 ERA in nine appearances at the corners of Clark and Addison. Chicago is a -153 favorite at SportsBook.com, with a total to be released later today.
