This week’s regional Sports Illustrated cover features the Chicago Cubs in light of Javier Baez’s Mother’s Day walkoff. The cover line reads: “Just Maybe… Right? Charles P. Pierce on the Last Great American Sports Story.”

Acclaimed sportswriter Charles Pierce frames the Cubs’ hot start this year against the last time they were this impressive— the year 1907. He breaks down the beginning of this season for the Cubs while giving background into the players’ and coaches' lives as they push to complete the last great American sports story by winning the 2016 World Series.
