Theo would be smart to re-sign his star pitchers.
THIS PROVES DONALD TRUMP WILL BE OUR NEXT PRESIDENT.
they said that the times that whenever the series has gone 7 games during an election year, and an NL team wins the series, a Democrat wins the presidency.
Of course, that means bupkiss in the real world.
Well that may have been the most high profile World Series series since the curse in '04. I have to say it's probably the best overall one since '91,
when Kirby Puckett and Jack Morris willed the Twins to the title. This is also the end of an era in the game itself. The idea of building through
free agency is as dead as the dodo bird. Even smaller teams are locking their stars up until their early 30s now. Rob Manfred is hell bent to make
changes to shorten the pace of games this off season. The upcoming 20 second pitch clock is a great idea. The International Draft they want to implement is not.
They don't have the scouting or facilities to really pull it off yet. And it could kill talent pools for the sport, like it did Puerto Rico for about two decades. International agents and scouts are already having their amateur players boycott the winter combines. The baseball of the future will be faster, with more emphasis put on relief pitching than ever and a lots of teams trying to tank to get better slots and draft pools. The minor league players are planning to take their fight for higher wages as far as they can this
offseason. Manfred says he wants to knock about two weeks of games off the regular season but I doubt that the other clubs and players union will agree to it during
the CBA discussions coming up. The amount of pitchers arms flaming out is also a big question mark. Nobody seems to know what to do about all the Tommy John surgeries.....
Well on to Basketball season!!
I don't really like baseball, but that was a great series. Happy for all of the Cubs fans.
....literally dying laughing.... hahaha.
Two Chicagoans die in an unfortunate car wreck.
Tragic, especially considering they didn’t exactly spend their days helping old ladies cross the street or volunteering at the Boys and Girls club. Nope, these fellows went straight to Hades.
The Devil, as is his custom, goes to greet his two newest eternal residents, and despite rivers of lava and torrents of brimstone, they’re standing around in jackets.
“Not hot enough for you?” asked the Devil.
“What, this? Nah, this is like a Spring day in Chicago.”
The Devil doesn’t take lightly to such a slight, so he decides to really turn things up. The renewed eternal hellfire and inferno has made the screams of the tormented souls in hell even louder. Rivers of lava overflowing their banks. The Devil goes to check on his two Chicagoans, and sure enough he sees them lounging in shorts and t-shirts.
“Not hot enough for you?” the devil queries bewilderedly.
“What, this? Nah, this is like a July in Chicago. In fact, I think the humidity was worse in the summer of ’96.”
The Devil is even more incensed. He comes up with a new idea. Turn the thermostat way down. The cursed souls in Hell are greeted by new but equally unbearable type of torture. The lava stops flowing, brimstone stops glowing, and wouldn’t you know it, the ground they stand on has frozen solid.
The Devil again searches out his two Chicagoans, and to his dismay, they’re hugging and cheering.
“What’s this all about!?” the Devil roared.
“THEY’VE DONE IT, IT’S FINALLY HAPPENED, THE CUBS WON THE WORLD SERIES!!!”
OK, so Obama just made a good joke about the Cubs.
"The last time the Cubs won the world series, it was before there was sliced bread, so... literally, this is the greatest thing for Cubs fans since sliced bread."
It's been FOREVER since I've posted here, but I'm proud to say that I attended games 4, 5 and 7. My kids won't be able to afford college now, but I'm sure they'll appreciate the stories. Seriously though, it was epic, unreal and fabulous. Best series ever. Now, I need my wife to take away my credit card because I think I have an unlimited need to buy Cubs WS Champion items of any kind.
Next up, time for the Blazers to rule the world.
