Really just three topics today: memories of a day we'd all like to forget, a remembrance of a long-ago title and hopes for the future.

Happy anniversary, Cubs. Yesterday was the 105th anniversary of the game the Cubs won to produce the team's last World Series winner. Here's the box score from October 14, 1908. And here's the story of another key game from that championship 1908 season.

  • Management has decided to hold the line on season ticket prices. Bad idea.
  • Keith Law (Insider only) says Kris Bryant is just one Cub prospect who has been looking good in the Arizona Fall League.
  • There's also plenty of 10 years later links, but nothing stood out.

Today's food for thought

  • This is a really fun photo gallery of the new animal species that have recently been found in a tropical Eden. You've got to see the Planthopper.
