Thank you Chicago Cubs for an entertaining second half of baseball…but unfortunately you were seriously outclassed by the Dodgers. Your pitching was abysmal in the NLCS, especially the bullpen, which outside of Wade Davis (who is a free agent and should be re-signed) needs to be completely overhauled.
Thank you Jake Arrieta and John Lackey for your contributions as Cubs and I wish you the best in your next chapters (Arrieta on a new team and Lackey likely retirement).
Thank you Cubs management for putting together a hell of a team…but please fix the bullpen and add a true leadoff hitter while the window to win championships still exists.
And to the Dodgers and their fans – good luck in the World Series. I’d be very, very surprised if you lost.
Oh yeah – let’s go Astros (to at least beat the Yankees)!
Now that I’ve said my piece, let’s talk some football…
