The Chicago Cubs are in town tonight, seeking to avenge their loss in the 1918 World Series at Fenway Park for the first time. Of course, as we all might remember, this really should have happened in 2003, when both teams were all-but-certain to win their respective League Champion Series.
As Baseball-Reference reminds us, both teams had a 90 percent chance of clinching the pennant and heading to the World Series that year until Steve Bartman and Grady Little intervened:
I don't think there's any doubt the Red Sox would have won that series, no matter who the National League opponent was, but things ended up working out all right, at least for the Sox. The Cubs? Well, they're the Cubs.
