Chicago Cubs...World Series Championship or bust?

Posted on: August 26, 2008 9:27 pm
 
Its been a magical year so far for the Chicago Cubs. They have the best record in baseball at 81-50! Ending the year with the best record would be great. Getting into the playoffs would be great too. Winning the pennant would be even greater. But lets be honest, anything less than a World Series Championship will be a disappointment.  At least that the way I feel. I've waited my whole life...they've never been this good...its been 100 years! It's a small window that a team has to be able to win a world series championship. A team can lose in the world series than not make it back for years or decades or even longer. The year is here and the time is now for the Cubs. Chicago hasn't even made the playoffs yet but things are looking very good and expectations are very high in the windy city.

Chicago Cubs...World Series Championship or bust?

Zambrano pitches a no hitter, Lily almost gets a no-no and then the Cubs beat C.C.  I think they've righted the ship.  Will they win the World Series?  I just can't make the call.  Tampa Bay reminds me of my White Sox in 2005.  They came out of nowhere, everyone thinks they will fade but they don't.  The X factor to me is Harden.  When that guys on he's almost unhittable.  To me it's all about pitching, pitching and pitching.  If it's Cubs vs. White Sox for the World Series do you think the National Guard will be on standby?

They are certainly making it interesting losing 6 in a row.  They are going to make the play offs either as the Division champ or as the Wild Card.  Hopefully with the rest they can give Zambrano and Harden they will be ready for the play offs.  Every team has a rough stretch in the season and the Cubs are going through theirs now.  Just like the Sox in '05, they are having their rough stretch in September.  They'll come out of it and be on fire in October just in time.

Chicago Cubs...World Series Championship or bust?

I only wish they could have won a title with my favorite Cubs player Ryne Sandberg.  They had a chance in 1984 and again 1989, but couldn't do it.
