105 straight eliminations. Unbelievable.

105 straight eliminations. Unbelievable.

Didn't the Cubs lose Game 7 of the 1945 World Series?

Honestly, it wouldn't surprise me if other major league teams go more than a century without winning a World Series, although the Indians are the only team I would expect could possibly do that in my lifetime.

Now that there are 30 teams, I agree that a century between World Series wins is likely to happen again.

The earliest any other team could match the Cubs' current 105-year mark is the Indians in 2053. After that, it would be the Rangers in 2066, the Astros in 2067, and the Brewers, Padres, and/or Nationals in 2074.

Of the original 16 teams, it took the Phillies the longest to win the World Series (1980). Before them were the Orioles/Browns (1966) and the Dodgers (1955).

What's more amazing IMO is the Cubs' nearly 70 years without a pennant. All but 2 of the 14 expansion franchises have won a pennant in the intervening time.

Thank you for understanding my point. The Indians haven't won the World Series since 1948, however. They lost four straight to the Giants in 1954.

The White Sox and Red Sox both went more than 85 years between World Series championships, and the more teams you add, the more levels to the postseason you add makes it more conceivable that teams could go a century between championships.

I think the more levels you add, the easier it is for teams to end their playoff drought. The toughest part of baseball is surviving the hellacious 162-game marathon. Adding extra playoffs allows more teams to qualify and then once you're in the postseason, anything goes.

The Red Sox, for instance, did not win their division either time they won the World Series. So without an expansion of the postseason, it's arguable that their World Series drought would still be alive today.

Yeah, I was counting to the earliest date that they could possibly beat the Cubs current 105-year drought as opposed to simply the century mark.

The Indians are probably the only team that have a chance of beating the Cubs WS title drought in my lifetime.

Guaranteeing that it will now be 13 years since there has been a team repeat as champion (2000 Yankees were the last).

Could be three more added to the list tonight, as San Diego, Philadelphia, and Minnesota are all on the verge of being eliminated.

Remember that we were a .500 team on May 26 and only 4 games out of first, even though that seems like a lifetime ago...

No I don't remember...amazing. Seems like they've been last place all season. They were 14-20, improved to 24-24 and were back down to 24-32 eight games later.

All the NL spots are spoken for. Just have to sort out the NL Central pecking order.

Congrats to the Pirates for breaking their 20+ year playoff drought.

Ends the longest current NL playoff drought, which now falls to the Marlins, who haven't made the postseason since their World Series win in 2003.

The Royals, barring a miracle, will fail to reach the postseason for the 28th straight year, their last appearance being their World Series win in 1985.
