It was, quite simply, the greatest game ever played.
Not the greatest baseball game ever played. The greatest game ever played. Period.
It had strategy decisions by the top managers in the the game that will be debated for decades. Maddon removes Hendricks in the fifth for Lester??
It had the best pitchers in the game on both sides giving up more runs in one game then they did in all of the playoffs.
It had the home team hitting a game tying home run by Rajai Davis of the Indians after his team came back from 5-1 and 6-3 deficits.
It had a rain delay.
It had pitchers on the mound in the end who were afterthoughts and here they were with the game on the line, game 7 of the world series.
It had a home run by the oldest player ever to hit a home run in game seven, beating Wilver Dornel Stargell's record at age 39 in 1979 for the Pittsburgh Pirates by three days.
It went to extra innings.
And it was won by a team that hadn't won a championship in 108 years. No one on earth is alive from the last time the Cubs won a world series.
Bless the souls of Harry Caray and Ernie Banks.
Well done Chicago Cubs.
Well done indeed.
Big Rico trial going on. Anyone have any updates? Don't see those in the REGJB very often.
