A Cubs vs Indians World Series: Can this be the year?

     Fantasy Postseason Staff

The first major league baseball team to win back-to-back World Series was the Chicago Cubs (1907-08). But then the droughts came and they haven't won since. On the other side of the playoff bracket, you'll find the Cleveland Indians. The Indians last won a championship in 1948, though, they have knocked on the door several times since then. They represented the American league in the World Series in 1997, 1995, and further back in 1954, losing each time. 

So what are the chances that these two longsuffering teams could end up facing each other in this year's MLB postseason?  The Cubs have clearly been the strongest team in baseball during the regular season and are odds on favorites (21/10, +240) to win a World Series ring in October. Cleveland is a solid team, but they have more modest odds (9/1, +950).  

The Cubs have the most talent in baseball and they have a strong pitching staff too, which certainly matters in the postseason....
