As a lifelong Chicago Cubs fan, I absolutely adored this alternate history of the Cubs. We all love our "lovable losers" but often wonder what would've happened if the Cubs had done something differently. A baseball expert takes a look at some of these moments in Cubs history and speculates what might've happened.

What if the Cubs hadn't traded Lou Brock to the Cardinals for Ernie Broglio, in what is often considered the worst trade in baseball history? What if the Cubs had fired manager Leo Durocher when he went AWOL, mid-game, in 1969? What if McDonalds owner, Ray Kroc, a lifelong Cubs fan, had purchased the team as he wanted to do? What if Steve Bartman hadn't tried to interfere with the ball during the playoffs? These and other moments in Cubs history are presented as they occurred and then how things might've turned out if the Cubs had acted differently.

Excellent book for a Cubs fan.
