Not being jinxy.
(I'm a good judge of those kinds of things.)
I'm just saying, if Joe Maddon takes the Cubs to the promised land, he won't just win Manager of the Year.
He'll be Manager of the Century plus 8 Years.
He'll become a Chicago (actually probably a National) God.
A worthy Chicago Icon bigger than we ever had before.
When that "promised land" thing finally happens, it'll be untouchable.
No one in the future has any hope of winning it all for a franchise that hasn't won it all for over a hundred years.
If they built a Mount Rushmore for Chicago Sports, Joe's head would be the biggest.
And with Kris Bryant winning the Rookie of the Year and the chance that Jake Arrieta wins the Cy Young tonight.. isn't that some kind of baseball karma trifecta thing?
I wonder if any team has won all 4 BBWAA awards (the one missing this year is the MVP, which is surely soon to come for one of these Young Cubs).
Kind of awesome.
