Haha I'll take it. Maddon's a fool though. Wow
Ragnarok is at hand
The Cubs tried hard to blow it.
Cleveland's pitching was just too cold.
In a move befitting Joe Maddon, he should be fired during the victory parade.
Jason Heyward may be the worst outfielder in baseball, but he's a good manager/team leader.
Make him manager next year and make Maddon the Special Consultant of Asshattery,
A $23 million/year cheerleader seems like a bargain.
Keep Maddon around and have him tell Heyward what he'd do, so he makes sure he does the complete opposite.
congrats to the Cubs. So you have Cavs winning, Cubs winning, why not the Jets? Nevermind..
Ferris Can take the day off
The FOX crew interviewed a lot of members of the Cubs organization after the game.
Maddon was the only one who wasn't happy.
Ricketts, Rizzo, Bryant, Zobrist, Ross, Lester, Heyward...
I wasn't watching - was he legitimately not happy after the Cubs broke a 108-year drought? Or was he just not as hysterical as the others were? What could he possibly have to be unhappy about? "Yeah, it's good we won, I guess, but I looked like an idiot in front of the world and people are making fun of me, and I just can't stand that."?
And by the way, Theo Epstein just punched his ticket to the Hall of Fame.
that was standard
teams never hold that runner on (with the lead in the 9th or in extras) because his run doesn't mean anything
especially with 2 outs because you don't need to keep the double play in order
He wasn't smiling and didn't seem happy at all.
Everyone else was smiling, ecstatic, etc.
something that didn't get talked about much:
the key figures in ending the Red Sox drought were involved here, on opposite sides
I've always wondered if that's true (surely there's some value in preserving the option of the force at 2B?) but I have no idea if anyone's ever crunched the numbers.
Absolutely, and I did in fact hear the corresponding opposite statement to the one I made - that if Cleveland had won Francona had punched his ticket to the Hall of Fame.
