Could Hosmer’s All Star Heroics Jinx the Cubs in the World Series?

Is the jinx on for the Cubs?

Before Game One-October 2016: Eric Hosmer’s stellar All Star Game performance helped guarantee that the American League would have home field advantage in the 2016 World Series.

Could home field advantage jinx the Cubs…or play into whether the Cubs win the series?

According to baseballreference.com, Cleveland and the Cubs are .500 in games they’ve played against each other since 1997, and in these stats, home field doesn’t seem to be much of a factor in wins or losses. BUT THIS IS THE WORLD SERIES!

It’s clear Hosmer’s MVP play in the All Star Game gives the Indians an advantage. For Cubs fans, we hate to see a proud moment for Hosmer and Royals fans dash the hopes for Cubs fans…or do we?
