I. Throughout the time leading up to the 1919 World Series, reporters in both Chicago and Cincinnati spoke about how good the World Series would be, and the odds-makers listed the White Sox as heavy favorites.
There was great speculation that in 1919, the White Sox fixed the World Series against the Cincinnati Reds. Even though there is factual evidence of such occurring, some members of the scandal still maintained their innocence, like “Shoeless” Joe Jackson. There was a trial about the scandal and the jury delivered a verdict of not guilty, however when Major League Baseball investigated, they banned eight members for life. In addition, prior to the trial, crucial evidence went missing from the Cook County Courthouse, including the signed confessions of two players, who subsequently recanted their confessions. With all the conspiracy theories taken into account, the White Sox indeed did fix the 1919 World Series in exchange for cash payments that were given to specific players.

In the 1986 World Series, Boston took a 5–3 lead in the top of the 10th inning. Red Sox reliever Calvin Schiraldi retired the first two batters, putting the team within one out of winning the World Series. However, the New York Mets scored three runs and winning it when Boston first baseman Bill Buckner allowed a ground ball to roll through his legs. In 2003, the Red Sox were playing the Yankees in Game 7 of the American League Championship Series. Boston held a 5–2 lead in the eighth inning, and Boston opted to stay with starting pitcher Pedro Martínez rather than go to the bullpen. New York rallied against the tired Martínez, scoring three runs on a single and three doubles to tie the game. Then in bottom of the 11th inning, Aaron Boone launched a solo home run to win the game and the pennant for the Yankees. Similar to Boston, Chicago had The Curse of the Billy Goat. The curse was supposedly placed on the Chicago Cubs Major League Baseball franchise in 1945 by Billy Goat Tavern owner William Sianis that lasted from 1945-2016. Between that 1908 triumph, which was the Cubs ' second world championship (they 'd also won the Series in 1907) Before the “curse” Chicago had won national League Pennants in 1910,
