The 2016 season was magical for the Chicago Cubs and their fans. There were a lot of great moments. We list the best ones by month.

When people talk about the 2016 MLB season, they invariably come to the Chicago Cubs. They ended their 108-year title drought. While the World Series win was the top story of the season, there was plenty of magic happening throughout the season.

From big wins to great plays to no-hitters, there were plenty of moments to keep fans happy reminiscing. This was one special team, and not just because of their play. They had a very young core (which should be intact for quite some time), and some wily veterans. There were some crazy characters as well.

The team was led by the biggest character of all, the mad scientist named Joe Maddon. He pushed all the buttons, and while some of his decisions were head-scratchers, his players followed his every word and bought into everything. They had confidence Maddon could take them to the promised land, and it happened.

Here are the best moments in the magical 2016 for the World Champion Chicago Cubs, going from month to month.
