|Heard This One Before: Cubs Waiting 'Til Next Year
|CHICAGO (AP) -- Carlos Pena's first, and maybe only, season with the Chicago Cubs ended like so many others for a franchise that has stretched its drought without a World Series title to a mind-boggling 103 years.
The season included sloppy baseball that ended with a 71-91 record, the firing of longtime general manager Jim Hendry and the suspension of right-hander Carlos Zambrano, whose latest antics may have finally ended his tenure with the team.
