The Cubs have never lost a game in November, going all the way back to their founding in 1871.
Sure, they've never played one, but still...
LATE UPDATE: I stand corrected. From Carrie Muskat's blog: "Tuesday marks a franchise record for the Cubs’ latest game by date, regular season or postseason, but the team did play games in November before. According to historian Ed Hartig, on Nov. 1-15, 1888, just 128 years ago, the Cubs played exhibition games during a world baseball tour that included stops in Australia, Egypt, Italy, England and Ireland."
