Will Theo Epstein and Joe Maddon be able to break the Chicago Cubs’ curse?
Chicago Cubs’ general manager Theo Epstein is already a curse breaker. He broke the “Curse of the Bambino” when he teamed up with manager Terry Francona to lead the Boston Red Sox to a World Series victory in 2004. Now teamed up with manager Joe Maddon, can they break the Cubs curse?
Maddon finished as Epstein’s runner up to Francona for the job with the Red Sox. Things are different now.
Epstein is with the Cubs and he’s built quite a team of young players with more on the horizon. Maddon spent the last nine seasons leading the Tampa Bay Rays to winning records six times.
Now the two men are, together, leading the Cubs’ charge to break their century long “Curse of the Billy Goat” with a World Series victory in 2015. Here are five reasons why the curse may be broken even sooner than people think.
