Memorial Day hasn't even hit yet and we've already seen the Cubs gracing the cover of Sports Illustrated in tandem with talk of a World Series.
Roughly seven weeks after Anthony Rizzo, Jason Heyward, Kris Bryant and Jake Arrieta were pasted on a regional SI cover as part of the 2016 MLB preview, the Cubs' Mother's Day celebration got another regional cover treatment:
It's a fantastic photo capturing arguably the Cubs' best moment of the year - a walk-off winner in the 13th inning while sporting the fun/unique breast cancer apparel.
It's also hard to argue with the headline "Just Maybe...Right?" and the smaller summary talking about how Cubs Nation is dreaming of bigger celebrations in October.
How could anybody be thinking anything else but World Series right now with the team off to a hot start unlike anything we've ever seen before?
Baez's walk-off slam was just the final moment in a week that saw the Cubs go 7-0 against the Nationals and Pirates, who just may be the second- and third-best teams in the National League.
The Cubs are so hot, they haven't even batted an eye at the so-called "SI cover jinx," disproving that notion from March's cover (though maybe the Houston Astros absorbed all that negative "jinx" energy from their March cover).
Should we put the over/under at 2.5 for more SI covers the rest of the way?
