According to the fan poll on MLBlogs.com, fans would be more shocked to see the Cubs’ title drought end than that of the Rays, Astros, or Brewers. Even setting aside my own biases, I find the idea of “World Champion Rays” more shocking than the Cubs winning the Series. Seriously, the Rays? The poster children for American League East inequity, somehow battling their way past the Yankees and Red Sox?
At least the Cubs have been to the World Series before (over 60 years ago, of course).
Which team’s title drought would you be most shocked to see ended?
- Cubs – 1908 – 48%
- Rays – Never – 26%
- Astros – Never – 15%
- Brewers – Never – 11%
