The cubs have been in the World Series 10 times. They won it back to back in 1907 & 1908. The last time they made it. It was in 1945 they lost to the tigers.
The Cubs have not made the World Series since 1945 and have not won the World Series since 1908. But Cubs fans always hope and continue to hope that the day will come when they will win the World Series again. Perhaps 2010 will be the year, 102 years after they last won it. If not, there's always "wait till next year".
As of 2009, the last time the Chicago Cubs made the playoffs was in 2008 when they lost to the dodgers in the National League Division Series.
Their only appearence in a World Series was in 2002, and they won that series.
the Chicago cubs. they haven't even made it to the world series for 100 years!
The Cubs won four pennants and two World Series titles over a five-year span. Although they fell to the "Hitless Wonders" White Sox in the 1906 World Series, the Cubs recorded a record 116 victories and the best winning percentage (.763) in Major League history. With mostly the same roster, Chicago won back-to-back World Series championships in 1907 and 1908. Their appearance in three consecutive World Series made the Cubs the first Major League club to play three times in the Fall Classic. Likewise, their back-to-back World Series victories in 1907 and 1908 made them the first club to win two World Series. However, the Cubs have not won a World Series since 1908; this remains the longest championship drought in North American professional sports.
