Growing up 1-1/2 hours outside of Chicago and seeing all the games on WGN, I was glad to see the Cubs win. It was painful at times because I prefer the old school attitudes of teams like the SF Giants, but the Cubs were humbled enough times by CLE that I felt like they went though all the trials and tribulations to deserve the title. I do think that Maddon is one lucky SOB though. Mike Krukow on a morning talk show ripped him a new one for his moves in last night's game. The only disadvantage the Cubs had going into the game was a tired Chapman. The way that Maddon handled the pitching changes almost cost the Cubbies the title. Great end to the baseball season!
