OctobEr 12–Hey 1700 blog followers see the slide show below. You heard it first here that Cubs would win the World Series, a prediction made last August. This is a team that has the chemistry and the momentum: in my 50 years experience following baseball, that is what wins the World Series. The significance of this prediction is that I have been a cynical Cub for 20 or my 40 years rooting for the Cubs. HOME RUNS, THREE BY ROOKIES, INCLUDING ONE EACH BY ROOKY BRCUBYANT AND VETERAN RIZZONWHO HAD BOTH BEEN IN SLUMPS SHOW UP THE CARDINALS. now Cubs 7, Cards 4 top of eighth in playoff today. And hey Jim H: the cards will not beat the cubs in the playoffs. Chemistry momentum outdo experience.
