So, another Cubs October and the only thing to wonder about is whether or not the postseason Cubs curse stays in tact.

This is one of those little know Cubs Curses, but it's incredible how teams in the past that have 3 ex-Cubs or more do NOT win the World Series.

This year there was only one team of the final four in the playoffs that had 3 former Cubs, the Milwaukee Brewers had Casey McGehee (an ex Cubs farm system prospect), Jerry Hairston and of course, who can forget everyone's favorite Cubs pitchers, LaTroy Hawkins (2004 was a rough year on Cubs fans!!).

With the news of Cubs GM, Jim Hendry being fired and the search for a new GM going on, a past GM named Dallas Green comes to mind. The ex Phillies manager pulled off one of the greatest trades in Cubs history when he traded Ivan Dejesus for Larry Bowa and a prospect named Ryne Sandberg.

The Cubs October page certainly fits the Halloween theme with infamous moments like, The Curse of the Billy Goat, Babe Ruth's called shot at Wrigley, Bartman and more. Let's hope a Theo Epstein entry will help us Cubs fans forget (or at least laugh) at some of these not so fun moments in Cubs history.

For Cubs fans, it's another year of wait until next year!!!
