The amazing thing about Bartman is that he owned the narrative by simply shutting it down completely. He never ever sought to engage. Never sought to capitalize or to be a part of the spotlight. He was put in the spotlight against his will and he stepped out of it and never ever waivered. Never threw a first pitch, never took money for an interview, never sought to blame A-Gon or whatever. He disappeared in plain sight. The 30 for 30 about him is amazing.They'll honor him now that the schnide is off.
It's laughable.No way. He had a much better game than Maddon had.
In the end of this game, the Cubs lineup was relentless enough to keep beating up on tired out pitching (and Shaw had had spurts of sucking in the regular season too). And the Indians just ran out of depth - their 25th guy, Michael Martinez, is a complete JAG had no chance. Meanwhile Almora Jr had a key baserunning play in the 10th inning, a huge contribution for a 25th guy.
This game should have been won 6-2 or something, and Maddon really fucked it up, but the Cubs were able to win out on a talent war of attrition. What a final game
Agreed, but sports are just games, and not all that important in the grand scheme of things. Bartman probably understands this more than anyone, so good for him if he stopped caring, too.I bet Bartman was watching. He's a Cubs fan. He deserves this night as much as any of them, and more than a number of them.
The Rizzo/Cashner deal never gets enough ink. It's like Byrnes was just gift wrapping him for Theo and Jed.Unfortunate that it had to be at Tito's expense, but 108 years is long enough. Congrats Cubs and Cubs fans.
Theo leaving Boston was one thing, but the way San Diego let Hoyer and McLeod just walk out the door on a lateral move for a scrub PTBNL was beyond stupid. And then Rizzo/Cashner to boot.
