I just read The Cubs Way by Verducci again. Such a freaking great book. So many amazing nuggets just in the Game 7 chapters alone. I always forget that Montero one-liner to Montgomery when the latter entered the game and asked what he had in mind: "I'll figure it out by the time I get back there."

I watched NLCS game 6 right before I saw FS1 had WS game 7 on. Holy horsefeathers, Hendricks deserves every dollar he is getting.

I've enjoyed watching these old games.

But holy crap is Chip Caray bad! I don't recall him being as awful as he truly was.

Two others things he used to do that drove me crazy...

He overreacted to every bunt. “So and so will be called on to move the runner over. He lays down the bunt AND IT’S A BEAUTY!!!!” Every time someone bunted in fair territory he’d excitedly scream, “it’s a beauty.” May have been real hard back to the pitcher who is starting to turn a double play, but Chip would have already exclaimed how great it was.

He also would say “could” when it should have been “would.” Bases loaded, two outs, bottom of the ninth, tie game, and he’d say, “a base hit here could give the Cubs the win.” No, a base hit would give the Cubs the win. Bases loaded: “a walk could bring in a run.” Did that a lot.

Joe Carter made Caray look good. Caray with Stone at the end of their run (when they would trash the team espec Alou) was fun.

That was a rough era for Cubs TV broadcasters.

As far as I know, none of our big league players or minor-league players have tested positive for COVID-19.

Yeah, I'm watching it and the quick hook on Hendricks still pisses me off. The bad call from the ump on a clear strike 3 before Maddon pulls Hendricks also pisses me off...

We came so close to blowing this lead lol. I used to defend him, but I'm so glad Maddon is gone now.

Lester came in and was dominant. Ross is the guy you should be mad at.
