You have to feel for the Cleveland Indians fans. They were so close and unlike the Cubs don’t necessarily look to be locks to make it back to the World Series next year. Still it was a great year for them. I have to admit about ¾ of the way through the season I had to look up their lineup because I really didn’t know who 90% of their starters were. Terry Francona really did a good job managing this team through their injuries to get them as far as he did.
Really this was a win for all baseball fans. Again two teams and fan bases who had suffered so long deserved their day in the sun. In the process they gave us a great World Series. And it was tough to dislike Cubbie fans when they had suffered so long. But now the gloves are off. Others can now give them all kinds of grief as the Chicago fans revel in their newly found Championship. Congratulations Cubs.
