As the 2008 baseball postseason begins, I find myself once again wondering what surprises and curses October is ready to throw at all fans this year. This season seems different. New things could happen and the baseball world could end up being shaken to its very core when it's all over. It could end up being something baseball fans, especially ones from Chicago, will see once in their lifetimes.
What would be the perfect ending for baseball? The Devil Rays rising up from oblivion, where they have been since they were formed? The Cubs finally killing off that billy-goat and never having to be called "lovable losers" again? or the Red Sox repeating and becoming the new dynasty of the decade?
