Now that the World Series is over (congratulations Yanks for the 27th time) and the MLB offseason officially begins exactly a month after the Cubs offseason began, I'm gonna go ahead and post my poll for the best Cubs games of 2009. There were actually some pretty good games to remember this year... along with the pretty bad ones as well. Sometimes it got to the point where to some of you, the best game (later in the year) was the game that didn't happen meaning the off-day in which we didn't have to see the Cubs load the bases with no outs and somehow not drive in a run. I think it was the comments from the "Come here and vent" post in mid-August is a good example of my last sentence.
With all that said the Cubs did finish five games above .500, something the Pirates would love to have happen to them. Plus, there's new light added for the 2010 campaign by the Ricketts family. I can't wait to see what kind of tricks Mr. Ricketts has up his sleeve. On a side note, I know this sounds kind of lame but I caught an episode of Roseanne the other night and there was a part where they looked into their family's future (remember these are the '90s) and one of the character's had a newspaper that read 2010 World Champion Cubs. I got a good laugh out of it but at the same time It kind of put a spark in me now that 2010 is a couple months away and, you never know.
I have tabulated the top 5 games of each month this season voted on by the bcb community and with that, I've put together a poll including those 5 games from each month of 2009. Vote for your favorite, and if yours isn't on the list, leave it in the comments.
