Game 7 Feelings

World Series Champions.  Never a doubt.

For Joel. 

For my grandpa.  For everyone that never saw this.  Cubs were the best team, February through November.  Champions.

Game 6 Feelings

World Series game 7 Cubs

I really don’t have any words tonight, though there’s plenty to talk about.  Maybe I’ll be able to write some coherent sentences then.

Game 5 Feelings

Whew.

Seriously.  Whew.  Holy ####, not sure I’ll be able to fall asleep anytime soon.  So, to try and organize some half thought-through thoughts.

Good:
1. Chapman.  This was a tough situation for him; he’s been bad all year with inherited runners and even worse in the playoffs.  Longest outing in his pro career, almost most pitches thrown.  He made it tougher on himself not covering first (though, not sure they get the out), but still came through. 
2. Lester.  I’ll get to the decision to ...

Game 4 Feelings

Well, hard to like much after that. Kluber was awesome, yet again. The Indians have made almost no mistakes, and have taken advantage of most of the Cubs. The lack of offense is surprising, but the defense falling apart bugs me the most. We can not pick moves here and there, but the Cubs just haven’t been good enough.

Luckily, there’s 3 more games. Once again, on paper, the Cubs have the pitching advantage. They could very easily win each of the next 3 games, or it could end tomorrow. I don’t ...

Game 3 Feelings

Well, not a lot that can be sugar coated after that one.  It really is amazing that was a 1-0 game, regardless of the winner, considering the weather.  The fact that neither team came anywhere near close to hitting a home run is absolutely unbelievable.  Anyhow..

Things I liked, enjoyed, or that gave me hope
1. Only giving up 1 run in this weather is a good thing, I guess.
2. I really don’t have any complaints with how any of the Cubs pitchers pitched.  It would have been nice for Hendricks to ...

Game 2 Feelings

Late night thoughts, as I wait for the NyQuil to kick in.

Things I liked, enjoyed, or that gave me hope
1. Schwarber, Schwarber, Schwarber.  Is this real?  Were I a neutral fan, I might start thinking this storyline is getting pounded into the ground.  But it’s just so damn incredible.  The entire postgame show was about whether or not he should play LF Friday, and how the Cubs are a different team with him.  Yes, they are, but they were still really, really ####### good without him.  ...

Game 1 Feelings

There’s plenty of analysis and overanalysis out there for everyone to find.  Rather than writing a long post in one of the threads, I figured I’d just throw all my thoughts up here and see what sticks.

Things I liked, enjoyed, or that gave me hope
1. Schwarber, Schwarber, Schwarber.  I kind of forgot how good of an eye he had, so there was something to like from each of his at-bats.  He only swung at 2 pitches out of the zone (I think), and even more impressively he hung in against Miller ...

Bring on the outsourced 5 minute Indians preview

I haven’t had time to write one of these up yet, but Walt posted this in a comment on the last thread.  I’ll just post what he wrote, and give any of my thoughts in the comments.

I’ve paid very little attention to this team all year but here goes:

Offense is better than the overall numbers look—the overall numbers are dragged down by a mostly terrible bench but the starters are pretty good and they cleaned up one weakness getting Guyer to mash LHP. There’s no stud batter but everybody is a ...
