Did they ever invite Captain Joe Hazelwood back to the Alaska coastline?
[T]he Cubs have not won a playoff game since 2003 and have now lost 197 games the past two seasons. Their mind-boggling championship drought stands at 105 years. Might enough be enough, finally? Could a moment between Bartman and Cubs fans heal his wounds and, as silly as it sounds, chase whatever supernatural juju seems embedded in the Wrigley bricks? After all, nothing else has worked.
“It would certainly be a nice gesture,” said Scott Turow, an author and a lifelong Cubs fan. “Whether it would work, who knows?”
...Most agree that Bartman was a small part of that fateful eighth inning. The Marlins clubbed four hits after the foul ball, and shortstop Alex Gonzalez booted a potential inning-ending double-play ball. “He didn’t cost us anything,” said the former Cubs pitcher Mark Prior, who was on the mound when Bartman deflected the ball. The comedian Jeff Garlin, a Cubs fan, said, “I want to find Bartman and give him a hug and tell him, ‘It’s O.K.’ ”

In both cases, there was an additional twist: the player to emerge from the shuffle as closer was not even the first or second player in line. In St. Louis, analysts thought that Trevor Rosenthal or Mitchell Boggs would take the helm, while in Boston, it was supposed to be Andrew Bailey, then Junichi Tazawa.

This is the essential good news:
Legendary L.A. Dodgers radio broadcaster Vin Scully has already committed to calling games for a 65th season next year, but the playoffs come first. The team says he’ll be there too. Scully will announce all but the fourth, fifth and sixth innings, leaving those to Charley Steiner and Rick Monday.
So we can all switch to another feed for the middle innings.
