When the Cubs clinched the final out of the 2016 World Series, the city collectively exhaled; the wait was finally over. Chicago’s National League franchise ended its 108-year title drought this season, winning a Major League–best 103 games and leading the NL Central wire to wire. All five of the Cubs’ starting pitchers posted double-digits in wins, while Kyle Hendricks led the Majors in ERA and WHIP with Jon Lester not far behind. And a young core bolstered by Kris Bryant, Addison Russell, Javier Baez and countless other stars who had led the club to the playoffs in back-to-back seasons brought the world title to Wrigleyville for the first time since 1908, ushering in a new era of prosperity.
