Holy Cow! The Cubs Are Good, But Can They Reverse The Curse?

Cody BealsContributor IAugust 26, 2008

The Chicago Cubs are most inevitably characterized as completely useless by September, because they haven't won a World Series in 100 years and they haven't even been to a World Series since 1945. Meanwhile all Chicago Cubs fans are hopeful for this season to end with a championship, most other people say that the curse is just too strong.

I personally think that the Cubs have a great shot at winning the World Series this year.

They have the best record in baseball and they were the first team to reach 80 wins on the season. The Cubs have, in my opinion the best starting rotation in baseball and they have led the league in Strikeouts now eight years in a row.  

The team is starting to gel, as they say and they are getting better and better as the days go on. They are currently on pace to win at least 100 games on the season. With the talent the Cubs have, you would be crazy to even doubt the possibilities. The Cubs have a lot of talent, with Alfonso Soriano, Aramis Ramirez, Derrick Lee, Geovany Soto, Ryan Theriot, and Kosuke Fukudome.

They currently have two rookies in line to have a big shot at winning the National League Rookie of the Year honor in Kosuke Fukudome and major favorite to win, Geovany Soto.


Ryan Theriot is in the top 5 in the National League in batting average with most recently having a .316 average.

The Chicago Cubs are a force to be dealt with in Major League Baseball and they are going to show every team in baseball that they are for real. I believe that they will come through for the most pathetic group of people on this earth, aka: Chicago Cubs fans. They love a team so much that has never loved them back.  

They flirt with destiny and can never fully achieve it, but this my friends is the year that they finally show you love.
