Thousands of words, maybe hundreds of thousands of words, have been written about the Chicago Cubs since they clinched their first National League pennant in 71 years.
The Chicago Cubs may have won the National League Championship Series, but that doesn’t mean their fans are any less superstitious.
Take Bryan, for example (pictured above). He sat in the infamous Steve Bartman seat during Saturday night’s Game 6 clincher. We only know him as Bryan because he wouldn’t reveal his last name.
I must admit, I have a love-hate relationship with instant replay.
I LOVE that technology enables the game to “get it right.”
The 2016 San Francisco Giants won 89 games this season and were three outs away from winning No. 90 when the bullpen imploded — again. You’d think manager Bruce Bochy would have been seen this coming by now; his bullpen had blown the lead, on average, one in every five games during the regular season.
But, if baseball were that predictable, if Bochy could have seen the unseen, you could bet he would have used his managerial wisdom to reconcile the outcome.
“But that’s baseball,” said Bochy.
