Ahhh 1908…..The first New Year’s ball drops at Times Square, Henry Ford produces his first Model T, and the Cubs win the World Series!
Ahhh 1948….The U.S. launches its first monkey astronaut, Joe McCarthy accuses just about everyone of being a communist, and Cleveland wins the World Series!
Yup, it’s been a while, and while it’s hard to dislike either of these teams (Controversy over mascots notwithstanding) I’m going with the Cubs. Forget the century of futility, goats, Steve Bartman, and curses, this is jsut a team and an organization that’s gone about building a winner the right way. In the end, I’m thinking starting pitching and a batting attack that can either explode for the big strike or play it 90 feet at a time will make the difference.
