10 years ago!


Ten year ago tonight the Cubs were just 5 outs away from the World Series and everything fell apart.

Just as when Steve Jobs died 2 short years ago, I will never forget where I was on that faithful night when the Florida Marlins would come from behind to force game 7, and eventually went on to take game 7 the following night sending the Cubs home for the offseason!

All said, I believe that the melt down demonstrated the weakness at the core of the 2003 team; that weakness was defense. Bad defense or not, the Cubbies still could have gotten past that faithful play and found their way to the Fall Classic had the coaching staff managed the melt down better. Woulda, coulda, shoulda, its all history now and there’s nothing we can do except continue to say, “Wait until next year!”
