    Which streak will be broken first?

    The Chicago Cubs haven't won a World series since 1908, or the San Diego Padres have never had a pitcher throw a no-hitter. Which has a better chance of being broken?

    At the present time? Definitely the Padres. The pendulum of baseball has swung far back to the side of good pitching, good defense, and small ball since the Congressional steroid hearings. In addition, there are an average of three no-hitters thrown every season. A given team has a far better chance of a fluke no-hitter being thrown than a World Series title.

    I'd say the Padres on the simple fact that all a pitcher needs to throw a no-hitter is one amazing day.  The Cubs have to sustain a good year, make the playoffs, then win a few 7-game series against worthy opponents on a huge stage.

    A Padre can pitch against the Royals on Saturday afternoon...not nearly as much pressure.

    More things have to go the right way for a team to manage to win a World Series than a pitcher to throw a no-hitter.  You hear about pitchers who generally aren't thought as "elite" in the game yet they have a great outing.

    Yes ,I agree the Padres have a much better chance. The Cubs never seem to head in the right direction for long.
