Will the Chicago Cubs break 'The Curse' and win it all this year? | The Tylt
The Chicago Cubs are heavily favored to win the 2016 World Series and fans are anxious for their first championship in 108 years. The Cubs won 103 games in the regular season and ended with the best record in all of baseball. But since 1969, only 11 teams with the best regular season record have won the World Series. And more importantly, the entire team is supposedly cursed. Do you think the Curse of the Billy Goat will doom the Cubs yet again or will they go all the way? Vote below.
Will the Chicago Cubs break 'The Curse' and win it all this year?
Legend has it the Cubs have been vexed by a curse since refusing to let William "Billy Goat" Sianis, owner of a local tavern, bring his goat into the ballpark as a good luck charm for Game 4 of the 1945 World Series. They haven't won a championship since.
"According to legend, the goat and Billy were upset, so then Billy threw up his arms and exclaimed, 'The Cubs ain't gonna win no more. The Cubs will never win a World Series so long as the goat is not allowed in Wrigley Field.' The Cubs were officially cursed."
Curses? Really. Nobody believes in curses. That's just bad luck, and it's about to go the Cubs' way. They've got the talent, the depth and home field advantage. So let it be written:
"I’ll tell you what’s happening: The Chicago Cubs are winning the 2016 World Series. It’s happening because, again, curses aren’t real. It’s happening because the Cubs have been on an absolute tear all season and only seem to be getting better."
Curses don't exist? Explain Steve Bartman. Once a loser, always a loser!
Oh, come on. This is the best roster in all of baseball. There isn't a curse strong enough to stop the Cubs:
The Cubs have the best offense in baseball, and it’s not really that close. They have the best defense in baseball, and it’s not that close. They have the best bullpen in the postseason, and it’s not much of an argument. They have the best starting pitching, even with Jake Arrieta’s egregious 3.69 second-half ERA stinking up the joint…
Even the fans have convinced themselves that the team is cursed! You can't fight destiny.
Sorry, curses are silly. You can't fight math. And the math says the Cubs are likely to win it all this year!
