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.
