Johnny Damon on comparisons between the 2015 Cubs and ’04 Red Sox

Johnny Damon certainly knows something about breaking baseball curses. The former outfielder played a pivotal role on the 2004 world champion Red Sox team that conquered the 86-year-old Curse of the Bambino.

Now as the Chicago Cubs advance to the NLCS, looking to break a curse of their own, one can’t help but draw comparisons between the Cubbies and ’04 Sox. On Mad Dog Sports Radio, Damon spoke about the similarities, and whether the Cubs can break their 107-year championship drought.

“I see those guys not worrying about what’s happened all those years passed, and I think you can give Joe Maddon a whole lot of credit,” Damon said. “It seems like those guys care for each other so much and they went through a lot of adversity during the year, and it just seems like they’ve found it.”

But while Damon would love to see the Cubs win their first pennant since 1945, he told Bleacher Report Radio they’re still not the top team he hopes to see win it all.

“Kansas City was always my team growing up and my first team,” said Damon. “Unfortunately Cubs fan, Kansas City is the only team I really want to beat you guys. Nothing against the Cubs fans, but Kansas City is definitely dear to my heart.”

Damon also shared his thoughts on who the best young player in the game is.
