In it, I think he talks about what some of us have been secretly dreading...What happens if the Cubs and Sox play in the series. Personally, the 2 annual series are always pretty hard on me. I dread every game they play together and hope upon hope that the Cubs come out on top. With all the back and forth between fans of either team...to play the Sox and if 1906 repeats itself and the favored Cubs lose to the Sox, it would be worse than 2005.
I don't know. Maybe it's just that little nagging voice that prevents me from even trying to calculate the magic number and was watching to see when we went over 81 wins to ensure a .500 season (and when we made 82 wins, celebrated that)that makes me a bit nervous, but this column just hit a nerve with me.
