Cheer up, Jose!
It's been a really fun season, and 97 wins plus the longest Cubs post-season run in 12 years (PLUS knocking the Cardinals out of the playoffs) is nothing to sneeze at; after all that, there's really no shame in losing to a better team with a ridiculously hot player. Almost everyone worth a damn on this team will be coming back next year, the farm system is deep with prospects, and the Cubs look set to contend for several seasons to come, none of which will bear the burden of endless Back to the Future 2 references. Of course, some additional arms wouldn't hurt — tell Theo to think about picking up David Price, wouldja?
Congrats to my Mets fan friends (and my Mets fan dad) — I thought this would be a tough, evenly matched series, but your team completely dominated it from the get-go. They're a lot of fun to watch, and a couple of your pitchers have truly impressive hair; I'll be rooting for 'em in the World Series against whichever American League team they wind up facing.
