WGN has the Cubs whupping the D'backs. Is this The Year?

Of course!

Unless it's like every other year.

Interested parties will enjoy Bleed Cubbie Blue.

My theory, based on history, is that the Cubs reliably do well up to the All-Star break, then they fall apart. In recent years, they've managed to push the collapse back further and further. The loss of Sammy Sosa may be bad, but Sosa was streaky. Nomar should do well, and they clearly have some pitching.

On the other hand, when their streak breaks, who'll be left?
