Are the Cubbies next? Sox World Series victories in consecutive years, the most recent, we have to say, being one of the least interesting in our memory, and a rather unimpressive cap on what was, overall, a disappointing year, despite some excitement in the second half.

And after two consecutive sweeps (small sample size?) and continued interleague dominance, is their any questioon about the NL’s inferiority?
