The Chicago Cubs are one win away from doing something that they haven’t done in over 100 years.
The Cubs currently have 89 wins on the season, and one more would get them to the magical 90-win plateau. If they can do so, it would be the fourth straight season in which they’ve hit that milestone, and that would be their longest such streak in a very long time.
In fact, the Cubs last won 90 or more games in four straight seasons in 1912, their ninth consecutive season of hitting that mark. During that stretch, the Cubs made the World Series on four different occasions, winning the Fall Classic twice in 1907 and 1908.
Even during that incredible stretch, the Cubs never made the postseason in four straight years, and they could accomplish that in the coming days if they are able to secure a playoff berth. That would be a team first, and it all begins on Friday when they open a three-game series with the Chicago White Sox.
