Does history repeat itself?

Ok, look. I'm just saying.

there are some eery similarities between the 2004 ALCS between the Red Sox and the Yankees and the current NLCS with the Mets and the Cubs.

I'm certainly hoping that the fate is not the same.

It looked like their dream run was over.

Until it wasn't.

The Sox came fighting back and managed to turn the series around and win it 4-3. It was the only time in MLB history that a team down 3-0 has come back to win a 7-game series.

So what's the connection between '04 and this year?

Both teams - the Red Sox and the Cubs - had Theo Epstein as their GM.

Both teams are facing a team from NY.

Both teams are trying to reverse a curse that has plagued the franchise for more than 90 years.

No, I really, really don't think the Cubs are going to come back from 3-0 down to win this series.

Maybe that's my fandom talking, but I just don't see it happening.

However, the links are kind of scary. They make me a little nervous... we've seen weird trends in sports come true more than once before.

Anything could happen. I just hope it doesn't.

Here's to hoping the Mets put to bed any of the ridiculous theories and superstitions that permeate baseball tonight with a clean sweep of the Cubs.
