Sad Lester is sad.
Grateful for his contributions to the Sox.  After that, meh. No sympathy for him, he could have come back to the Sox.  We had some good times, it was fun.  
 
Now he's just "Someone I Used To Love".

The cradle of the game.
"During the annihilation of St. Louis by Boston in the 2004 MLB World Series, the Boston Red Sox not only had never trailed in the series, but also had held a lead at some point in each and every inning of that series -- an unprecedented accomplishment in the history of MLB best-of-7 playoff series."

Oh cool, Maddon's innovative "pitcher batting eighth" strategy about to be employed

The crowd shots will be a fossil and his fossil wife dressed like the game is being played in Alaska, a wrecking ball or two with their hats on backwards, a younger guy with his glove in one hand and a pistol in the other, a middle aged dumpy housewife, a nerd with glasses and no Cubs gear on at all looking like he's at an insurance seminar and a young kid crying, showing us the curse of the billygoat spares no one in Cubstown.

No, you don't. They simply aren't invested to the degree Sox fans were pre-2004. They just don't care that much. They go Wrigley to get wasted in the bleachers not because they care about winning
 
Agreed.
 
Cubs fans aren't like Red Sox fans pre 2004; over the past 70 or so years, the Red Sox went to the World Series four times pre 2004 and all four went to 7 games, 1946 was Pesky holding the ball, 1967 was the impossible dream, 1975 was the greatest world series ever played and throw in the Fisk home run, not to mention the epic disaster of the 1986 world series,  plus the 1978 collapse and the 2003 ALCS game seven vs the Yankees on top of that.
 
The Cubs have been to  grand total of one World Series in the same time span; in 1969, they blew a huge division lead to the Mets, in 1984 they blew a 2-0 NLCS lead in part thanks to Durham's error and 2003 was the Bartman nonsense.
 
That's it; not even close.  For them, it's all about going to Wrigley, having fun and being a lovable loser, a  label they embrace and hold onto like grim death.

He's going to look like a genius, saving that PH for later.
 
He really is a genius, especially considering how chock full of sluggers National League benches are.

I mean, we're old enough to remember when they made PCs. This fact might surprise some of the younger folks here.

Has one team ever lost every regular season game to another team, and then won every post-season game against them in the same season?
