Congratulations to former Carmine HosersTheo Epstein, Jed Hoyer, Jon Lester, David Ross, and Anthony Rizzo on the 2016 World Series Championship. After quenching Boston's 86-year drought, Epstein instituted a five-year plan to free Steve Bartman from his Dante-like Hell. It worked. In a thrilling Game Seven, the Cubbies lost a late lead and surged back in extras to capture their first ring in 108 years. If only the NOG (New Ownership Group) on Yawkey Way nurtured Epstein's genius instead of frustrating it at every turn, we might have another title or two.
