Seeing Red, Feeling Blue

Now the Cubs fans are getting a little taste of what its been like to be a Braves fan over the last decade – getting tantalizingly close and then watching them let it slip away. The Cubs have no one but themselves to blame. They had three chances to put it away and didn’t. It’s more fun to be in the post-season, but damn does this point frustrate. If the Red Sox lose today, we’ll have the one matchup of the 16 possible in the post-season that I just plain didn’t care about. There was one NL and one AL team that I just didn’t give a damn about, and it looks like they might meet in the World Series. If so, then as far as I’m concerned the season is over today. We’ll get ’em next year.
