This is it.
For the first time since 1908, the Cubs have a chance to win the World Series.
Not only do they have a chance, the odds are actually in their favor.
They’ve overcome the Cleveland Indians’ 3-1 lead after Game 4, earned their first Fall Classic win at Wrigley Field since 1945, survived two sudden-death games, and now they’ve made it to Game 7 of the World Series...
For most fans, any of these things alone would have been enough. Altogether, it’s nothing short of a miracle. Now it seems no Bartman, no Billy Goat Curse—nothing can stand in the way of Chicago’s “loveable losers.”
Yet some fans are worrying that Cubs closer Aroldis Chapman may not have enough left to power through Game 7 after he put in 20 pitches for Tuesday night’s game, thanks to a controversial decision by Manager Joe Maddon.
He decided to keep Chapman in, hoping to protect Chicago’s 7-2 lead. “I thought the game could have been lost right there if we did not take care of it properly,” Maddon explained at a post-game press conference.
“It was just the middle of their batting order. There was just no other way to look at that and feel good,” he added. “The meaty part of the their batting order, if you don’t get through that there is no tomorrow.”
But for the Cubs, and Cubs fans, this time there is a tomorrow.
