Biggest non-championship appearance drought ended. Last WS appearance 1945.

Only makes the inevitable all that more painful.

That would have been Sox-Cubs 2003.

Cleveland has won . . . this last century.

Either way, one city is going to suffer. I suppose Cleveland can point to the Cavs and their potential to win again. Chicago has the Blackhawks. Will not help "long suffering" baseball fans, though, with Chicago, many of those are already dead.






Too soon?

This is Red Sox I versus Red Sox II, save the Cubs have the ignominy of Wine Glass Joe as their manager.

Cleveland's manager is undefeated in World Series games. :)

If anyone can find a bizarre way to lose, the Cubs can.
"It is not I who is mad! It is I who is crazy!" -- Ren Hoek

"[... it seems most strange that... ] the Creator of Heaven and Earth resorted to the womb of a certain Jewish lady, grew there for nine months and was born as an infant, and afterwards grew up and was betrayed into the hands of his enemies who sentenced him to death and executed him, and that afterwards... he came to life and returned to his original place. The mind of a Jew, or any other person, simply cannot tolerate these assertions. If you have listened all your life to the priests who have filled your brain and the marrow of your bones with this doctrine, and it has settled into you because of that accustomed habit. [I would argue that if you were hearing these ideas for the first time, now, as a grown adult], you would never have accepted them." -- Rabbi Moses ben Nahman, defending the Talmud at the Disputation of Barcelona, July 1263.

"God is the supreme excuse for human adults to absolve themselves of any obligation to preserve natural resources for their own children during their lifetime." -- Gene Ray

Cleveland's manager was undefeated. This is a different Cubs team. I probably just jinxed them.

With a biggish lead, shouldn't they have saved Chapman for game 7?

Yeah . . . I wondered about that, but I was not paying sufficient attention to know who else was available. Maybe he had "suck," and he knows it is "all hands on deck" tomorrow. That includes Lester.
