Its a pleasure finally being able to post..
Well after stalking these blogs for the second half of the season, and waiting for my account to be approved i'm finally able to post my take on things.
It seems as though most of us Cubs fans have completely given up, I even saw a post about completly changing the name, knocking down Wrigley Field, and starting over. That is just completly ridiculous.
I know i'm not the only one that realizes how close we were to actually maybe pulling off the last two games. (I know the scores were a blow out) But if you think about it, baseball is a game of momentum, Dempster was one strike away from ending the 5th inning. Let's say Dempster gets out of it, the momentum would still be on The Cubs side, and the bats probably would've been alot louder. But as we know Dempster did it to himself, and the rest is history. On Thursday in the second that double play would have ended the inning, and it would've been 0-0, totally different ball game, but once again the Cubs did it to themselves and the rest is history.
What I'm trying to get at is do you really expect this team to go out and walk 7 batters again, or commit 4 errors (or err-ahs as stockton would say) this team is better than that and lets keep faith they could pull a miracle off. I hope i'm not the only one watching tonite, not only hoping for a miracle but just so I could see my boys play at least one more time before 2009.
