The Associated Press: Did Cubs throw 1918 World Series vs Red Sox?

This is an interesting read, I wouldn't be surprised if this was actually true since a lot of the World Series in the 00's to 20's were rumored to be fixed. The potential was certainly there with low paid ball players and gamblers all over the sport. Also the Series was still in its formative years, and to the players wasn't that big of deal. They'd rather not be in the Series so they could go on barnstorming tours and make as much on the side in a month as they did for the entire season.

Hopefully we can get some discussion going about this.
