franchises history, winning the title in 1984, 1989
and 2003. The Cubs also earned a spot in the playoffs
as the Wild Card team in 1998. Three times, in 1984,

The Cubs nearly won the National League – Central
Division title during the 2001 season, and hoped to
finish the job in 2002. The Cubs however could not
continue the successes they had the year before and
were under.500 for most of the season. At mid-season,
the team saw their manager fired and rookie pitcher
Mark Prior go 6-6. At seasons end, the team manager
would change again, in an effort to get back to 2001
form. The 2003 season was a resurgence for the Cubs.
The Cubs earned a spot in the playoffs and faced the
Atlanta Braves in the National League Division Series.
In that Series, the Cubs would win in 5 games, to
earn the right to play the Florida Marlins in the
League Championship Series. In that Series, the Cubs
dreams of finally getting back to the World Series
were shattered as the Marlins beat the Cubs in 7 games.
The 2004 season saw the Cubs achieve there first back-to-back
winning seasons since the 1971-72 seasons. Although
injuries plagued the team through much of the season,
the Cubs saw the return of ace pitcher Greg Maddux
who earned his 300th career win. Slugger Sammy Sosa
also became the Cubs all time home run leader, passing
the legendary Ernie Banks.
