100 And Counting

It’s official. Cubs Baseball 2008, R.I.P.
The Cubs lost in LA tonight to the Dodgers and were swept out of the NLDS for the second straight year.  More or less it boils down to this: if you can’t handle the RISP, you have to deal with the R.I.P.
The whole thing blows my mind honestly.  This was not the Cubs team I wrote about all season.  This was some other team, right?  Come on, perhaps some other group of guys? Had to be.  These guys had some fake on the mound in Game 1 wearing a Dempster costume who couldn’t find the strike zone at Wrigley.  Had four impostors in the infield who couldn’t field a ground ball for an out cleanly.  Had a leadoff hitter who forgot about the ‘hitter’ part.  Had an All-Star right fielder who couldn’t do anything.  Led the league in rolling their eyes at the umps as opposed to celebrating wins in front of them.  Had the nerve to leave Wrigley Field with an ‘L’ flag flying and the baseball season as a whole with a loss.  No, this couldn’t have been the same group of guys, right?  And if it was, what a horrible time to choose to stink up the joint.
And while I thought these guys had what it takes, apparently I was wrong and now who knows how many of them will be back next year for sure?

Even career years such as these…now…really don’t matter, do they?

An unbelievable season followed up by an even more unbelievable ending.
We have no choice though.  It’s happened.  We lost…again.  Believe it.  Nine straight post season losses.
Like the Cubs season, no more to come here tomorrow.  This one stung and is going to take a week or so to get over.  100 and counting…

  1. I can’t believe it. Everything that was going for us for 161 games just dried up in the playoffs. We’re a better team than the Dodgers, we just didn’t play like it. Now its over. I can’t believe it. How many next years will this take…
