W!

It's a strange new world.

WOOO!!

That was a marathon.

Maddon sure is lucky using Chapman with a 5-run lead yesterday didn't come back to bite him in the end.

It did, but he's lucky it wasn't worse.

Grats to Chicago. I can't say I'm not bummed but that was a hell of a series.

Holy cow, they just ran a Harry Caray bud commercial.

I've been waiting 34 years for this.

On the other hand, the Cubs have been in the playoffs every year my son's been alive.

I don't see how this doesn't go down as one of the best games of the World Series.

Same and same.

I'm really happy for the Cubs.

They can stop baseball now. It's over.

Although that blown call on the the 3rd strike Hendricks threw in the 5th is what led to it ending the way it did. It was not a ball and those two runs would have never happened.

What's the most Cubs/Cleveland way to lose a World Series? In Game 7.

To go back to this question, I realized afterward that the Cubs way to lose would have been if Bryant really slipped on that last play and threw the ball up the right field line. Tying run scores from first. Winning run on second with 2 outs.

Was he really grinning as he fielded that ball?

Oh, and I'll just quote this little post I made last night.

I think the pressure is going to be on the Cubs to get a couple runs off Kluber early, so the Indians have to use Miller to keep the game close rather than shut it down.

Not exactly Nostradamus, I know, but the leadoff batter did go yard (first time ever in a WS game 7). If you told the Cubs before the game that they'd get 4 off Kluber and 2 more off Miller, they would take that any day.

I think the best play of the game was Bryant's run from 1st.

Happy for Zobrist to win the MVP. He is a great guy.

Hell yeah he was. I thought that was great watching that in slo-mo. Just the look of "Yeeaaah I got this" come over his face as he was fielding that was a pretty awesome thing to watch.

Great catharsis for a long suffering and loyal fanbase. Absolutely incredible Game 7 and WS as a whole. Hard to imagine a better experience (short of my team being part of it)

Hopefully its a sign that managers are finally realizing that 'saving' your best pitcher for a hoped-for later advantage is sub-optimal to putting your best pitcher in when needed right now. Saves are dumb.
