Wrong, It has been 95 years since they won the world series. It has been only been 58 years since they were in the series. They lost to Detroit 4 games to 3 in 1945.

I'm rooting for the Cubbies. I have always like Sosa and I really want to see him win a title. Plus they haven't won in ages.

The way I look it, is you have a million people rooting for the Cubbies not only in Chicago but a lot of people in South Florida too (bunch of frontrunner traitors), so I say who's rooting for the Marlins? Who's rooting for the guys who were told by everyone that they were not suppose to be in the playoffs, that they don't matter, that the Marlins are not a real baseball team? Since I live in Miami and they are representing me and my city I will root for them.

Well its always sad to hear a friend who has passed away, I send my condolences again to you. But just to inform, the Cubs won their last playoff series in 1989, they were in the NLCS. And without a worldseries in 95 years, they are a very very lucky team. They have a billion fans that root for them whether a lose or win (your dearest late friend is an example), the Marlins don't have that luxury.

Just to clear everything up right here and now with the Cubbies' playoff history.

Last World Series Appearance: 1945
Last World Series Victory: 1908
Last Postseason Series Won (before this season): 1908

Remember, the wild card wasn't put into place until 1995. The Cubs made it in 1998 as the wild card but were swept out by Atlanta. Before then, each League had two divisions. The team with the best record in their division went straight to the League Championship Series. So, in making the playoffs in '84 and '89, the Cubs didn't have to win a playoff series to make the NLCS. Then, to go all the way back to 1945, they didn't even the League Championship Series then. The team with the best record in their League went straight to the World Series.

Anyway, the Cubs are going to take this series. Only 3 times since the LCS started has a team gone up 3-1 only to lose the series. Don't forget that both Prior and Wood are pitching two of the next three games. Marlin fans, your team fought hard, and deserve a lot of credit for getting this far. However, it will be the Cubs who will be carrying the National League pennant this season, their first in 58 years.

The Cubbies only need one more win!

If the Red Sox can win the series against the Yankees we will get the World Series that I have been hoping for.

Because he only had one corked bat and I don't believe that he had always used a corked bat like some others do. Sosa was always my favorite non-Mariner player.

Why would he need more than one? If the bat breaks hes done for the day, if it doesn't he still has a corked bat.

that has to be the most ridiculous argument i have ever heard....the same two teams hit and field in this stadium when they get together, your argument would be legit if we gave one corked bat to the marlins (say mike lowell) adn let him use it, then it would be even....

Marlins have won two of three games at Wrigley FYI, so their certainly is no advantage....they fly out deep to center plenty

Win or lose tomorrow, Chicago is going to riot. The whole season rests on Wood's shoulders. He might never feel pressure like this again in his career, unless he happens to get the ball in Game 7 of a World Series.
