WASHINGTON — The Chicago Cubs win whenever they need to, with whatever it takes, even a seven-out save by Wade Davis to preserve a shrinking lead and a “Did that really happen?” four-run inning against Washington's Max Scherzer in a thriller of a Game 5. That wild, bat-around fifth inning Thursday

On Thursday evening (and Friday morning) the Chicago Cubs and Washington Nationals partook in an elimination game that lasted four hours and 37 minutes. Should it really take less time for the moon to move past the sun than for the Cubs to move past the Nationals? Video replay is not the only cause

In 2014, the Chicago Cubs made a marginal improvement after spending years in the cellar. After averaging 96 losses a season over the previous three years, they'd gone 73-89. They'd still finished last in the National League Central, but when the Cubs brain trust looked deeper, they saw it was
