Harry Caray predicts Cubs will win World Series in three games

In honor of the Cubs playing in their first World Series in 71 years, actor and comedian Will Ferrell reprised his legendary impression of Hall of Fame announcer Harry Caray.

Ferrell called into The Dan Patrick Show on Tuesday morning, as the late Caray, to share his thoughts on the Cubs being in the World Series against the Cleveland Indians.

"This ballclub is stacked," Caray said. "Javier Baez. Anthony Rizzo, I loved him in Grease, but I love him even more as a Cub. And here's what's so remarkable. You've got this guy (Joe) Maddon. How great has he been? I mean, he won a World Championship in the NFL with the Oakland Raiders and now he's coaching baseball. Who would have thought? What a talented guy."

After tearing ligaments in his knee in April, Kyle Schwarber has already recovered to earn a spot on the Cubs' World Series roster. Caray has an idea of how Schwarber's knee healed so quickly. 

"They put a chicken bone in his knee," Caray said. "They fused a chicken bone inside with his knee cartilage."

While the World Series is a best of seven series, Caray thinks the Cubs will do something no MLB team has ever done before.

"Cubs in three games. Unless it goes the full eight."
