The 2015 MLB season ended for the Chicago Cubs without a title again. They got swept away by the New York Mets in the NLCS, and the title-less frustrations continue. There was a lot of good that happened, however. It was hopefully ground-level to a longtime contending team on the Northside of Chicago. 

The Chicago Cubs’ season ended again without a World Series title. We won’t go over how long it’s been now, since just about everyone knows what it is.

The season had some great moments, however. There was a lot of magic happening in Wrigley Field. The young Cubs performed better than anyone realistically expected, and they impressed. While many thought this team might be a .500 team or marginally better, they won 97 games, good for the third-best record in Major League Baseball.

There was a lot of change that happened with the Cubs. Offseason hirings, signings and trades infused excitement, and helped change the attitude around the team.

Hopefully, the 2015 season was ground-level to a new, winning-type team that has desperately been needed.

There are more changes in store as the Cubs try to go to an even higher level of play.

Before that, however, let’s take a look at how the 2015 season progressed for the Chicago Cubs. Overall, it was a great season filled with tons of magic and great play.
