    Baseball season was one day short of SEVEN months... That is entirely too long.

    Congrats @00Rocket28 . As much as I hate the Cubs I'm happy you get to experience this.

    Same with me. I rarely watch baseball anymore. However, prior to the 1994 strike I watched it a lot, usually made several trips yearly from eastern Kentucky to see the Reds, and kept up with the baseball news in both leagues.
    This series and the long suffering Cubs victory may recharge my inner baseball batteries for the future.

    Couldn't get on the computer at all last night, too nervous. And, unfortunately, my worst fears came true last night. But, hats off to the Cubs for making the plays when they had to. And congratulations to @00Rocket28 and all the other true blue, die-hard Cubs fans, you guys deserve it.

    Cleveland had their opportunities last night, and for the most part, didn't cash in. And, then the rain delay happened at the worst time for them, and probably the best for the Cubs. It gave Chicago time to take a deep breath, regain their composure and come back out strong.

    Kudos to Francona for trying to win a series with basically one starter and three relievers. Unfortunately, it usually doesn't bode well when you give a team like the Cubs that many looks at the same guys over a span of a week and a half. It'll be a hard pill to swallow with a lot of the "what if's" that Cleveland had.

    The lone bright spot for me with the Cubs win, is that Ross gets a ring. Like others on here, have always liked the guy. Glad he was able to go out on top, not only individually (with the homer) but with his team.

    Quit your whining. He was 100% consistent.

    Looking like HUGE ratings. Did it beat the NBA Game 7 Finals?

    Schwarbs is just a bad dude and was the difference maker. No doubt letting the AL have homefield actually benefited us more. When Zobrist drove in the go ahead, followed by Miggy's RBI, I was fighting back tears. I just loved this team. Super happy for Zobrist. Dude grows up a Cub fan in Illinois and is the MVP for the Cubs when they finally win it all? Doesn't get any better than that. I love how genuine Rizzo was, the dude is just a big kid. Ross and his HR. Man just so many amazing storylines.
    The rain delay played an important role but as a life-long Indians fan I don't begrudge the Cubs a long-overdue world series victory. Congratulations! I love your enthusiasm as a real fan, Rocket.

    Yes, by quite a bit actually.

    Had the fortune of watching the game with a good friend who is a die hard Cub fan. It was fun to see the reaction!

    I know it would be a pipe dream but it would be interesting to see what he could do with a small market team budget.
