Friday, October 9 1908 -- The Chicago Cubs and Detroit Tigers are pennant winners, and will face each other in the World Series for the second year in a row. For the two or three people who care so little about baseball that they don't know the famous bit of trivia, 1908 would be the Cubs last World Series victory, as of the present. Despite new manager Joe Maddon, who abandoned my poor Tampa Rays this year, it looks like the Cubs aren't about to end that winless streak.
