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!

99% of Cubs fans got over Bartman back in 2003. It was other assholes that wouldn't let him be.

And anybody who had any baseball knowledge knew the collapse shoulda been blamed on Alex Gonzalez to begin with. That guy got off scott free bc of Bartman

I put some of the blame on Dusty Baker. He has a young pitcher on the mound who was a bit unhinged by what happens. Does he go out to the mound to say "Listen Mark, forget that last play. We have the lead and are 5 outs away from finishing this series."? No. He sits on his ass in the dugout. They had a 3 run lead. Just a crap job of managing

Per Rotoworld:
FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Red Sox will acquire left-hander Chris Sale from the White Sox.
Oh baby. The Red Sox are paying a big price, as top prospects Yoan Moncada and Michael Kopech are involved, as well as two other prospects. The Nationals were said to be in the lead late Monday, but Dave Dombrowski is known for being aggressive on the trade front and he was able to get his man. More details should pour in soon.

There's something kinda hilarious about the Sox having 2 of their top pitchers be Sale and Price. :lol:
