So that's why the Cubs lost 

From Steve Harvey's column:
The World Series is over but not the speculation about which jinxes prompted the dramatic collapses of the Red Sox and Cubs in post-season play. I'm surprised that no one has mentioned the dreaded O.C. Curse.

It befell manager Dusty Baker, whose teams blew big leads in the World Series last year and the league playoffs this year.

Baker has had nothing but bad luck ever since he declared on the eve of the 2002 Giants-Angels World Series: "Our focus is 'Beat L.A.' " When it was pointed out that Anaheim isn't in L.A., Baker insisted, "It's Southern L.A." You insult Anaheim that way, you pay for it.
