Chicago Cubs blogs

Since the Chicago Cubs haven't won a World Series crown in 100 years, there are some fervently hopeful fans out there, especially in the blogosphere. Here are some of the best Cubs blogs:

- The View From The Bleachers - Cubs talk from some well-educated bleacher bums.

- Len and Bob’s baseball blog - WGN Cubs announcers Len Kasper and Bob Brenly weigh in on the Cubs.

- Chicago Cubs Online - Self-proclaimed "straight talk for the Cubs faithful." We agree.

- Wrigleyville 23 - The latest on the Cubs and the team's media coverage.

Paul Sullivan's blog picks

We asked Chicago Tribune Cubs reporter Paul Sullivan about his favorite sports blogs, and boy did he have some good ones.

Here are a few that made his short list, along with the reasons he likes them:

- HIRE Jim Essian - Keeps the local sports media on its toes. It tastes great, too.

- Desipio Media Ventures - Rude, crude and out of control, but never dull.

- Thunder Matt's Saloon - A little bit too esoteric at times, but I like their style.

- Goat Riders of the Apocalypse - Won a 'Bloggy' award in 2007 for sickest Cubs posts.

- A Hundred Next Years - It's worth checking out for the name alone.
