I love James Taranto, but he ain't very sports minded (scroll down towards bottom if you click link):

They call it "the curse of the Bambino" -- the Boston Red Sox's inability to win a World Series, something they haven't done since shortly after the turn of the century. But now there is a chance to break the curse, as the Sox face the expansion Colorado Rockies in the October classic.

The "curse" was broken in 2004 -- when the Red Sox won the World Series!

Technically, Taranto has an out since "shortly after the turn of the century" can mean the 21st century. But since he mentioned the "curse," he obviously meant the 20th.

I think he knew what he was writing. He was, of course, referring to the 21st century. That's his sense of humor.
