According to Fox Sports in the U.S., it is the first time that none of the World Series champion team’s players have advanced to the All Star games in the following year. Wade Davis is the only Cubs player to be invited to the World Series, but he just moved from the Kansas City Royals to the Cubs after the end of the last season.
In last year when the Cubs ended the "Curse of the Billy Goat," the team’s players accounted for five of nine starting fielders chosen through fans’ vote, as they enjoyed overwhelming support. In contrast, as the Cubs are in a slump ranking second in the Central Division of the National League as of Friday in this season, fans are less enthusiastic about the team’s players.
This year’s Major League All Star game, which brings together the best of the best players, will take place at Miami Marlins Park in Florida at 9 a.m. on Wednesday next week (Korea time).
