Is it too early too start projecting a Red Sox/Cubs World Series?

May 18, 2016

This article was originally featured in the latest edition of The Morning Mando.  I’m not great at making long-term sports predictions. But I don’t really think many people are, for that matter.

I was across the street from Fenway Park the other day, enjoying lunch at Tasty Burger, one of Boston’s hippest and best burger joints. Afterwards, I took a stroll around Fenway’s exterior, where all of the Red Sox championship banners hang along the side of the ballpark.
