Agreed. But regardless congrats to the Cubs and all of their fans.

Ftfy. Should be in HOF immediately. Congrats cubs fans

Watching Bryant's face while making that last throw was pure joy.


Already had it with the Red Sox. Unless double god status is a thing.


I don't know if doing it with Sox made him a God, More like a Titan. Doing it with both teams definitely is a God

Tip of the cap to the Cubs. They have a heckova team, and the tribe's arms eventually gave in.

It's a different series if Carrasco was healthy

Congrats to Cubs. Long deserved.

Cashman must be GM Zeus, then. 3 titles before he was 33 and 9 consecutive AL east titles at one stretch.

Theo is still pretty damn good at what he does, I just think it's gross to include corporate brass (irony!) in the HoF.

edit: actually not ironic, but here's my new slogan: The Hall is for Bronze, Not Brass!!

Cashman is ridiculously overrated. The last WS win by Yanks (2009) there was only one homegrown player drafted in the Cashman era that actually did anything for the team (Cano). Everyone else was brought in through ridiculous contracts. Tex made 20 million, Arod, Damon was making 13, Matsui the same, CC almost 25, Burnett almost 16.

Yeah but he signed them. And they have had plenty of homegrown talent come up (and traded) in his time and right now they are considered about the best going.

That said, it's the same beef I had with the deification of Theo in BOS- the bosox could afford to eat the bad contracts, of which there were many. They also lucked out big in the form of dudes that they agreed to take in trades/signings ultimately helping them win (Okajima and Lowell come to mind).

A couple of years ago I was waiting in the poster line outside of a music venue in SF for a show. (yes, it was Phish. Shush!) I struck up conversation with a guy from Chicago who grew up in the same neighborhood with Steve Bartman -- played on the same little league team, knew his parents *really* well. He said that Steve had written a book detailing his experiences that crazy night in '03 and the years since (and, I'm assuming, his reactions to last night's incredible victory), and that it would only be published after the Cubs win it all.

I for one, being a huge fan of the game in general, am really looking forward to reading it.

All of those scapegoating f**kers owe him worldseries-sized apologies, plus dinner/drinks for the rest of his life. And though I doubt he would accept, I'd like to see him be humbly asked to throw out the first pitch at the ring ceremony next year.

Congrats again, Cubs fans!
