Sox Fan WS Conundrum: Indians (Tito) Vs. Cubs (Theo)?
Clash Of The Competing Ghosts?
As our FenwayNation Poll shows, the Cubs and Indians are the two teams that most of our readers support—now that The Carmine Hose are golfing. And it makes perfect sense. The Tribe have the following Boston connections: Terry Francona, Brad Mills, Mike Napoli, Andrew Miller, Michael Martinez, Marlon Byrd and Coco Crisp. The Cubbies are even more loaded with Beantown Bros: Theo Epstein, Jed Hoyer, Jon Lester, John Lackey, David Ross, Anthony Rizzo, Eric Hinske and Tim Federowicz. So, what if these two squads meet in the World Series? (By the way, this guy predicted exactly that back in April) Which side to choose? Was Tito more meaningful to our success or was Theo? A 108-year curse versus a 68-year curse? Oh, the humanity!
