'Battle Of Curses' World Series Has Clear Boston Flair
Well, it happened. The Cubbies and Indians are in the Fall Classic starting on Tuesday night. We won't burden you any further with the bevy of Boston connections in this World Series—just that two of the most consequential people ever in Red Sox management history will face off—Theo Epstein and Terry Francona. Who can forget their embrace after the 2004 sweep of the Cardinals—with the burden of curses lifted forever? Now, they battle again to rid franchises of more curses—the Cubbies 108-year drought and the Tribe's 68-year hiatus. For Red Sox fans, either outcome would be a good one. Play Ball!
