Re: Cubs eliminated again
It also should be noted that only two other franchises have not played in a World Series since the Cubs. The Washington National/Expos franchise and the Seattle Mariner franchise. Both as we all know are expansion franchises since 1945 and haven't had as many opportunities as the Cubs.
Also 1945 was a war year in which many of the better players were involved in WWII and the talent level of MLB was diminished considerably.
