This is not a typo. The longest suffering team in professional sports is now the frontrunner to win the World Series. After defeating the St. Louis Cardinals, Las Vegas odds makers put Chicago atop their betting lists. In a vacuum, that’s not so crazy. After all, they had the third best record in baseball this year and just knocked out the team with the most wins. But you can’t deny history and not having won a championship since 1908 is daunting. For now, the team must wait to see whether they face the Dodgers or Mets in the NLCS.
