No Guts, No Glory:
The Chicago Cubs’ rough season is finally at its end. And with only three games left to go in their dreadful season, the reasons to attend a Cubs game are few and far between.
But like with everything, there are pros and cons about attending this week’s season ending series against the Astros.
The cons are easy: The Astros suck, the Cubs suck, and the baseball played by both teams will suck. But on the pro side, there a legitimate reasons to attend. For one, the game is at Wrigley Field which will always be a pro in our book. But most importantly, you can get tickets to a game for a measly $0.19.
That’s right, $0.19.
CBS Chicago grabbed this screenshot from StubHub showing two tickets in section 533, row 3 going for $0.19.
If this isn’t doesn’t get you to out to Wrigley Field (and it probably won’t), we don’t know what will.

Fresh off of suffering through our first 100 loss season since 1966, the Cubs went and announced that they're gonna move in the brick wall behind home plate.
They pulled a similar stunt back in 2004, adding three rows of "premium seating" for folks with money to burn.
Now, I couldn't fathom how much it costs to move a brick wall 3 feet, but based on how...
Well, the good news is 2012 is almost over for the Chicago Cubs.
Probably I was one of about 47 people who watched last night's 2-8 Cub-drubbing by Arizona.I mean, I watched but it was unwatchable.I googled "Cubs tv ratings" and the newest article (the Sherman Report) is from August 31st.It says White Sox games rule tv in Chicago (yada yada whatever dude), but worse...
In a season that has mostly sucked it seems appropriate to pay tribute to those who helped them suck even more than they would have otherwise. I haven't looked this over so I'm doing the work as I write along. We'll start with the position players and if I feel like I'll do one for [...]
Faith used to come easier for a Cubs fan. If you've been paying any attention, it has been beaten out of you. Over the years, we've been told to believe in one can't-miss phenom after another. Cubs fans have lived on them. They were all saviors.
I don't know where any of them are now.
Last time I talked to Karl Pagel, once featured on the front page of the Wall...
If you're in the Chicago area and looking for a cheap date night activity, consider the friendly ivied confines of Wrigley Field. Despite having already lost 100 games, the Chicago Cubs are not the worst team in basebal—or even in their division! That honor falls on the lowly Houston Astros who currently sit at with an anemic record of 54-106.
In a bit of scheduling...
On October 1, 1932—exactly 80 years ago this Monday—during the fifth inning of Game 3 of the World Series at Chicago’s Wrigley Field, Yankees slugger Babe Ruth, facing a 2-2 count against Cubs pitcher Charlie Root, looked over to the Cubs dugout then appeared to point toward center field.
Ruth hit the next pitch 440 feet, over the center field wall.
The home run broke a 4-4...
Anthony Rizzo had three hits, David DeJesus homered and the Chicago Cubs ended a seven-game losing streak, beating the Arizona Diamondbacks 7-2 on Sunday.
The Cubs had lost 18 in a row against NL West opponents. The win allowed them to avoid a 100th loss this season, with three games remaining.
Chris Rusin (2-3) allowed one earned run and three hits in five innings.
The Chicago Cubs wrap up their dreadful season this weekend against an even worse Houston Astros squad at the Friendly Confines.
The Cubs are at 60-99 and the Astros are at 53-106. That's right the two worst teams in baseball. Why would anyone want to see these teams play? That's probably why two tickets on StubHub are for sale at $0.19.
That's right, $0.19.
The Chicago Cubs got their 100th loss of the season when Lucas Harrell threw six shutout innings to lead the Houston Astros to a 3-0 win Monday night.

The Chicago Cubs held off suffering their 100th loss for one more day, but may have only given the fans at Wrigley Field the chance to witness them reaching that mark of futility.
The Houston Astros, hoping to avoid a franchise-record 107th loss, will try to hand the Cubs that milestone defeat Monday night in the opener of a three-game series.
Chicago avoided being swept by Arizona...
