If you missed it, the The Chicago Cubs Are World Champions. I have been known to fire off a twitter hot take or two about the Cubs here and there. This is when I take the egg on my face about it. I also included some responses to some of my tweets because they are so funny in retrospect. I was planning on giving everyone a pass but some of them are just to damn good to pass up. Without further ado

Spot on. No reason for outfield depth, what a waste that Dexter Fowler was.

The Braves went 68-93. 2018 is coming, and it doesn’t look bright.

Nice job Theo, you fucking idiot

Gerrit Cole and Me, Blood Brothers.

Who needs Kris Bryant when you have Jorge Soler and Brett Jackson. What a waste of a pick. Should have taken Jon Gray. (LMBF’s own Hank with the shitty call of an Edwin Jackson turnaround there)

This one just stings. Chance The Traitor. Coloring Book was terrible anyways.

This was the day we acquired Shark. Everything went downhill after this.

I was right. Starlin Castro was always a bum.

Despite saying he sucked, I still found a way to argue they should keep him over Ben Zobrist. Ben Zobrist, World Series MVP. Nailed it. Also s/o to Peter on the math work on this one.

Ok so Aaron Nola has been pretty good, but still, egg on my face. What an idiot.

Fire Hot Takes from LMBF’s own Nick Surges. I think he forgot Mike Trout exists but somehow 8 people agreed. And I can’t even blame him on the first one, everyones fallen for James Shields at some point of their life, right Rick Hahn?

Screen Shot 2016-11-04 at 8.54.53 PM.png

Yeah Kris Bryant, what a shit swing.

Screen Shot 2016-11-05 at 1.43.11 AM.png

LMBF’s own Steve-O Campbell dropping the analytics bomb on me. Not a bust indeed.

Screen Shot 2016-11-04 at 8.54.45 PM.png

Speaking of which, fucking nailed this one.

Screen Shot 2016-11-04 at 9.11.28 PM.png

There’s that Shields guy again!

Screen Shot 2016-11-04 at 8.56.26 PM.png

Shark was awesome, and Lester went to the Giants. I knew it.

Screen Shot 2016-11-04 at 9.09.39 PM.png

Somehow the Sox won this game. And then James Shields won the next night. What a world.

Screen Shot 2016-11-04 at 8.52.45 PM.png

Spot on though. Absurd move by him

Screen Shot 2016-11-04 at 8.51.12 PM.png

Starlin sucks, take that Hank!

Hasn’t quite raked yet there Kent. Still some time here though.

Even I, the Cubs hater, couldn’t predict just how awful Heyward would be. But pete, just gotta point out, .255 would have been a dream for ole Jason.
